Explaining how news has become interactive. There used to be no way to engage with news stories, and that is changing.
How have the web changes affected news?
News is published the same – people share the story after it’s published
Take queues from your audience
Facebook users share more than 5 billion pieces of content each week (libraries – so shouldn’t we be creating content around our content that people can share???)
85 percent of college students have a Facebook account
Journalist’s digital presence – Some are segmenting their personal and professional.
News orgs should put their videos on youtube instead of just their website – put it where people are already going.
Someone in the audience publishes news – then what?
Hudson river plane crash – first pic came from a personal trainer – not a reporter (@jkrums on twitter)
Ouch – foursquare tip – never take a class with a certain professor!
Location based journalism…?
Journalist uses audience to report, then what? They now use the audience before, during, and after the event.
