The News Industry: How the Digital Age is Changing Journalism

It is an exciting time for journalism, with the news industry turning from print to digital. As a result, many new players have entered the field, and many old ones are adapting to a changing market.

Some old ones adapting to changing market demands are newspapers like the Seattle Times creating mobile apps for their readership or international broadcasters like Al Jazeera, who began airing on Twitter TV in 2013. These three different examples exemplify how technology has affected journalism.

The New Digital Era
The newspaper industry was revolutionized when many newspapers went online around twenty years ago.

One way technology affects journalism is through distribution channels (i.e., which mediums they use). Content creators can now reach more audiences across multiple platforms with increasing adoption rates and an ever-growing number of online platforms.

Another way technology affects journalism is by altering communication patterns between journalists and audiences (i.e., how information flows). For example, as an increasing amount of content was created online, it became more difficult for journalists to control what the audience had access to when communicating with them; as such, going back to some traditional practices became necessary.

Students And Journalism
In the digital age, students have an interest in journalism. Journalists are under pressure to produce content faster and more efficiently than ever before with fewer resources - which is leading many students who want to pursue a career in journalism to find workarounds like starting their own blogs or publishing online on Winnetonka High School instead of relying on old school print media outlets that no longer exist. 

The Internet was a major game-changer for all students and young adults who wanted to become journalists because they now have access to more stories than my local newspaper could publish in the paper each day. So when Facebook and Twitter came out, they were another way for students - or anyone else really! - to find interesting articles that might have been missed by most people's traditional news sources such as radio broadcasts, cable TV networks, major newspapers, and magazines. 

After many years of gaining popularity on social media sites, student journalism started taking shape, with blogs being created online all the time so students can get their work seen more easily. Without having any experience, YouTube channels popped up where students would post videos related to current events every day.

Student journalism has changed a lot in the last few decades, and students are doing more to get their work is seen than ever before, which is what makes this so exciting! It's easy for students who want to pursue careers as journalists nowadays because there are a ton of different ways that they can share their content without going through traditional news sources like newspapers or magazines.

All that you need is an internet connection, and someone will see your story - either on social media sites or even if you make videos about current events every day!

What does all this mean? It means it is an exciting time for journalism and aspiring journalists because there are many new possibilities and opportunities available today!
