Splitter: State of the News Media 2014

11. Mai 2014

Bereits Ende März 2014 ist der diesjährige State of the News Media Report erschienen, der seit über 10 Jahren durch das Pew Research Center herausgegeben wird und einen Überblick über die sozioökonomischen Entwicklungen im US-amerikanischen Journalismus gibt. Dabei arbeitet der Report u.a. heraus, dass professionell produzierte Nachrichteninhalte auch auf Social-Networking-Plattformen wie Facebook eine Rolle spielen und zugleich die Grenze zwischen unabhängiger Berichterstattung sowie Public-Relations-Content im Online-Bereich zunehmend verwischt:

»The year also brought more evidence than ever that news is a part of the explosion of social media and mobile devices, and in a way that could offer opportunity to reach more people with news than ever before. Half of Facebook users get news there even though they did not go there looking for it. And the Facebook users who get news at the highest rates are 18-to-29-year-olds. […] In digital news, the overlap between public relations and news noted in last year’s State of the News Media report became even more pronounced. One of the greatest areas of revenue experimentation now involves website content that is paid for by commercial advertisers – but often written by journalists on staff – and placed on a news publishers’ page in a way that sometimes makes it indistinguishable from a news story.«
