Anti social media
Social media has revolutionised journalism and wider society, for good and bad. Journalists have powerful tools - but are watching the collapse of a newspaper industry failing to compete with social media platforms. Individuals can make their contribution to the global conversation, but at the price of vicious and intimidatory trolling which threatens freedom of expression. Social media has transformed political campaigning but its recent misuse in the UK and US undermines democracy. This book recognises the good and looks at ways to minimise the bad, with contributions from leading experts in journalism, politics and digital media, as well as the latest academic research.

Comparing Innovation and Social Media Strategies in Scandinavian and US Newspapers: Digital Journalism: Vol 6, No 8
The article focuses on innovation and social media strategies in newspaper companies in the US and three Scandinavian countries (Sweden, Norway and Denmark). Many previous studies have focused on the state of journalism and media industry in single countries, although media have distinct features in different countries. Through the comparative setting, it is possible to examine the differences in media innovation strategies and study what factors affect innovation in media production, business models, sources of funding, and social media strategies. The qualitative part of the paper consists of semi-structured in-depth interviews (N = 65) with media managers and experts, which were carried out in Scandinavia in 2016 and in the US in 2017. The quantitative market data covers the years 2006–2016; this timespan corresponds well with the accelerating digital transition in the newspaper business. According to the results, new business models are mostly new combinations of existing revenue streams, while adaptation of new technology is slow, with few exceptions.

Mood boards and social media lockdown: How one newsroom is dealing with notification overload | Media news
“I have switched off alerts on my phone for WhatsApp, Facebook, Twitter and work emails. And what that’s done is helped me prioritise a lot more - and I felt a lot more in control of my working day and have been able to map it out.

“I know that doesn't work for everyone as far as day-to-day breaking news because the team that I work on, we've got our remit of reporting stories and topics of interest.”

Turning off alerts during your working day makes practical sense – but it is a hard ask for journalists (like myself) who desperately do not want to miss out. Entwistle is a fan of Jeff Sutherland’s ‘Scrum: The Art of Doing Twice the Work in Half the Time’ where a logical rather than a FOMO-driven emotional approach is taken.

The News User on Social Media: A comparative study of interacting with media organizations on Facebook and Instagram: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 15
Online trends and platforms come and go, and media professionals have historically shown a keen interest in adopting novel modes of content distribution in order to capture the interest of the elusive online audience. This paper provides insights into the employment of online interactivity by news media users in relation to the social media presences of a selection of Norwegian media outlets. Adopting a comparative approach, the study features analysis of data from online mainstay Facebook and from the comparably novel Instagram platform. Among other things, results suggest that the previously noted tendency for audience members to prefer “lighter” or less-demanding modes of interaction with online news content is further strengthened—especially on the latter of the two studied platforms. Given that Instagram tends to attract comparably younger users, the implications for the news media industries as well as for future trends regarding audience interaction in relation to news are discussed.

Social Media and U.S. Journalists: Uses and perceived effects on perceived norms and values: Digital Journalism: Vol 6, No 7
This study, based on a representative online survey of 1080 US journalists conducted in 2013, analyses the demographic and organizational predictors of how journalists use social media and how they evaluate the impact of these media on their professional norms and values. The findings indicate that 9 of 10 US journalists regularly use social media in their work—but mainly to check on what other news organizations are doing and to look for breaking news events. The most frequent users of social media are younger journalists with higher incomes who work for television, radio, or online news organizations. The findings also indicate that journalists who hold more positive attitudes toward the use of social media in journalism, and those who think that social media are more important in their jobs, tend to be more supportive of the populist-mobilizer and the disseminator roles of journalism.

Journalism as Multichannel Communication: A newsroom survey on the multiple uses of social media: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
The use of social media reinforces the change in journalism from a single-channel activity to multichannel communications. News organizations and journalists must learn to simultaneously operate several social media channels. Furthermore, social media is multi-functional and applicable in all phases of news production and distribution. Taken together, journalism is reaching a higher level of complexity. This study’s main objective is to systematize the multiple uses of social media in journalism and explore related newsroom strategies. To this end, we surveyed editors-in-chief of German internet newsrooms (n = 105, response rate: 70 per cent) about social media use in their newsrooms. We systematically distinguished five general dimensions, with 24 specific uses of social media in journalism. The results show that Facebook and Twitter serve multiple journalistic purposes. In contrast, blogs and YouTube are more specialized tools. We conducted a cluster analysis to explore if and how these patterns vary by different strategic approaches in organizing social media use in newsrooms. While the overall pattern remains stable, more experienced and strategy-oriented newsrooms use Twitter notably more often for various tasks.

How Age Affects Journalists’ Adoption of Social Media as an Innovation: A multi-group SEM analysis: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
American newsrooms are adopting social media as an innovation for greater engagement. However, several organizational and individual factors may affect the extent to which news outlets adopt social media innovations. In particular, there is assumed to be a divide among different age groups of journalists in embracing social media. Utilizing a structural equation modeling (SEM) analysis, the study seeks to understand how social media culture in newsrooms affects journalists’ strategies of taking social media as an innovation, and how journalists of different age groups differ in the SEM model fit. The analyses indicated Twitter engagement mediates social media culture and journalists’ attitude toward social media. However, that was not the case with Facebook. Additionally, while younger journalists favored Twitter, older journalists embraced Facebook and middle-aged journalists adopted both Facebook and Twitter. The analyses showed the more that middle-aged journalists interacted on Twitter, the more they tended to have a positive attitude toward social media. However, the more that younger and older journalists engaged on Twitter, the more they tended to have a negative attitude toward social media. Journalists from all three age groups tended to hold a negative attitude toward social media if they engaged more on Facebook.

Engaging the Audience in a Digitised Television Production Process: A “hierarchy of influences” approach: Journalism Practice: Vol 12, No 7
This article discusses producer practices and the reasons why they engage their audience in the production process. In a digitised media context, audiences have become more visible, mainly through social media, and have more means to participate. Our research deconstructs the production process of a particular television programme by means of the “hierarchy of influences” model, which separates micro and macro levels that influence production. It draws on in-depth interviews with all editors of Flemish current affairs programme De Afspraak (The Appointment) and on a three-month participatory observation. We conclude that immersive ways of engaging the audience are applied in our specific case. More broadly, we argue that although practices change, pre-existing norms and values about the television audience remain central to how producers engage their audience through digital and social media.

Understanding News Sharing Across Social Media: Detailing distribution on Facebook and Twitter: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 11
News sharing across different social media platforms is increasingly impacting on our news habits. However, we know very little about what makes news popular in these settings. The current paper details what types of news stories are shared the most on two social media platforms—Facebook and Twitter. By conducting a qualitative content analysis and comparing data from four Norwegian media outlets, we find that editorial comment pieces about “softer” news topics are more frequently shared than “harder” news topics from all media outlets—except for TV2. For this latter broadcaster, the results suggest that sensational news and news regarding celebrities allows for viral effects to take place.

Networks of Audience Overlap in the Consumption of Digital News by Subhayan Mukerjee, Silvia Majo-Vazquez, Sandra González-Bailón :: SSRN
How do people consume news online? Here, we propose a novel way to answer this question using the browsing behavior of web users and the networks they form while navigating news content. In these networks, two news outlets are connected if they share a fraction of their audiences. We propose two crucial improvements to the methodology employed in previous research: a statistical test to filter out non-significant overlap between sites; and a thresholding approach to identify the core of the audience network. We explain why our approach is better than previous approaches using two data sets: one tracks digital news consumption during the 2016 Brexit referendum in the UK and the other during the 2016 Presidential Election in the US. We show that our filtering technique produces a completely different ranking of top sites, uncovering structural properties in the audience network that would go unnoticed otherwise.

During active cases, the media cannot publish anything that carries a substantial risk of serious prejudice to proceedings - this applies to broadcast reports and speeches too.
Robinson's broadcast outside court found him in contempt of court.
Offences like his can cause a trial to collapse, as the jury may be deemed unable to deliver a fair verdict - at great cost to the court (and therefore the British taxpayer).

Please Follow Us: Media roles in Twitter discussions in the United States, Germany, France, and Russia: Journalism Practice: Vol 12, No 2
The media are normatively expected to play significant roles in conflictual discussions within national and international communities. As previous research shows, digital platforms make scholars rethink these roles based on media behavior in online communicative environments as well as on the structural limitations of the platforms. At the same time, traditional dichotomies between information dissemination and opinion formation roles, although seemingly universal, also vary across cultures. We look at four recent conflicts of comparable nature in the United States, Germany, France, and Russia to assess the roles that legacy media have performed in the respective ad hoc discussions on Twitter. Our approach differs from previous studies, as we combine content analysis of tweets by the media and journalists with the resulting positions of the media in the discussion graphs. Our findings show that, despite the overall trend of the “elite” and regional media sticking to information dissemination, online-only media and individual journalists vary greatly in their normative strategies, and this is true across countries. We also show that combining performance in content and social network analysis may allow for reconceptualization of media roles in a more flexible way.

Fear of Isolation and Perceived Affordances: The Spiral of Silence on Social Networking Sites Regarding Police Discrimination: Mass Communication and Society: Vol 0, No 0
The spiral of silence (SoS) framework elaborates the factors that determine whether individuals are willing to express their opinions in public. Although previous scholarship has examined differences in between face-to-face and computer-mediated communication, research studies have rarely tested how perceived affordances of the channel influence whether individuals express opinions or self-censor. In this study (N = 399), we examine several propositions of SoS within the context of discussing police discrimination on Facebook. To extend the theory’s relevance to social networking sites, we examined how users’ perceptions of network association, social presence, anonymity, and persistence related to opinion expression. Findings indicate support for some of the theory’s original tenets, as well as the role of multiple perceived affordances in determining whether people will express an opinion to their online social network. We discuss the implications for measuring and understanding political expression and silencing on social media as well as offline.

Interactive documentary is an interactive non-fiction genre, within digital storytelling, that is developed in the diversification period in the digital context and, particularly, on the Internet. The digital convergence of media favors the creation of complex products, characterized by navigation and interaction, as well as new audiences’ participation. Social networks open ways for promotion, contribution and personalization of interactive documentary. In this research, we have made a selection of significant projects from the period 2010-2015 and coming from all over the world, in which the development of the genre and the use of social networks have been analyzed.

Learning by Doing: Perspectives on social media regulations in Norwegian news organizations: Journalism Studies: Vol 19, No 6
This paper investigates journalistic social media use from the perspective of the media organization. Specifically, we examine how media professionals working within Norwegian news organizations perceive social media guidelines by focusing on three empirical areas—assessing perceptions of scope, form and content. Data are collected and analyzed by means of a mixed-method approach. First, we provide results from a large-scale survey of Norwegian editors and journalists. Second, the article details insights from 14 qualitative elite interviews with editors-in-chief, working in leading news organizations in the context studied. The study shows that while the use of social media presents new dilemmas for the organizations, the main goal is to allow journalists to utilize them rather than to restrict their use. While guidelines are mostly present, they appear as subordinate to other, more informal methods of control. The relaxed approach identified leads to experimenting when new technology is introduced, and seems sensible in a rapidly changing technological environment. At the same time, pressure increases on the individual journalists who have to find their way in a field of work that grows ever more complex.

When Social Media Become Hostile Media: An Experimental Examination of News Sharing, Partisanship, and Follower Count: Mass Communication and Society: Vol 0, No ja
This study examines whether the characteristics of those who share news articles on social media influences the hostile media effect. In an experiment, participants read a news article shared by one of four Twitter users, 2 (Republican vs. Democrat) X 2 (21 vs. 503 K followers). Consistent with the hostile media effect, both Republicans and Democrats believed a news article shared by a Twitter user from an opposing political party was more biased than one shared by a Twitter user from the same political party. As the Twitter account has more followers, on the other hand, this effect was more prominent among Republicans and less prominent among Democrats.

“Citizen Curation” in Online Discussions of Donald Trump’s Presidency: Sharing the News on Mumsnet: Digital Journalism: Vol 0, No 0
In an era of fake news and concerns about “social-media bubbles”, we consider how participants in online discussions on the UK parenting website Mumsnet assess the validity and potential subjectivity of news information sources. Building on previous work on the phenomenon of “social media curation” and “news curation”, we argue that there is evidence for the development of a theory and practice of “citizen curation”—the subjective and non-professional collection, assessment and criticism of information by participants in online discussions for the benefit of the group. Participants on Mumsnet collaborate to source, present and curate information from a variety of news sources, and impose a clear hierarchy with reference to these sources’ veracity. Information garnered from mainstream, liberal-leaning news sources is given the highest level of trust, often being used to support information from other sources, which are seen as less trustworthy. Information might also be presented from conservative-leaning news sources, but only when it supports the overall anti-Trump tone. Having acknowledged the selective subjectivity of the curatorial process performed by our participants, we then ask how far this contributes to the creation of a “liberal bubble” effect, and how far our participants are willing to go to validate news stories shared in this way. We argue that our participants demonstrated a clear awareness of the veracity and potential subjectivity of their sources, worked collaboratively to verify news items, and were proud of their ability to “scoop” the mainstream news media on occasion. Given that earlier work on such groups of news-absorbed users has suggested that they tend to be male, the identification of such a group on a female-dominated website also expands the literature and suggests that such gender differentiations should be made with care.

Differences existed between news organizations in the use of such hyperlinks to their own websites, as well as socially and technically interactive functions of Twitter such as retweets, @mentions, hashtags, and multimedia. Tweets with interactive characteristics seemed intended mainly for the purpose of promoting news organizations’ programming or content.

Re-evaluating journalistic routines in a digital age: A review of research on the use of online sourcesNew Media & Society - Sophie Lecheler, Sanne Kruikemeier, 2016
This review article provides a critical discussion of empirical studies that deal with the use of online news sources in journalism. We evaluate how online sources have changed the journalist–source relationship regarding selection of sources as well as verification strategies. We also discuss how the use of online sources changes audience perceptions of news. The available research indicates that journalists have accepted online news sourcing techniques into their daily news production process, but that they hesitate to use information retrieved from social media as direct and quoted sources in news reporting. Studies show that there are differences in the use of online sources between media sectors, type of reporting, and country context. The literature also suggests that verification of online sources requires a new set of skills that journalists still struggle with. We propose a research agenda for future studies.

Artificial Intelligence Is Coming for Publishers’ Analytics
This trend in newsrooms isn’t new, exactly. But the trajectory Echobox shows suggests that analytics as many publishers understand them are changing more quickly than many realize. From dashboards, analytics tools have evolved to rely on AI and bots to “read” website and social media data, learn when something is notable and alert newsrooms. Sometimes editors are cut out of the equation entirely, with bots acting on the analytics data they see.

This can be really helpful. Google Analytics unveiled automated insights in 2016 and in July announced Ask Analytics Intelligence, a natural-language query tool for Google Analytics. Earlier this month Chartbeat announced their own upcoming release of automated insight reports to help editors more easily see what’s noteworthy in their data. And then there are tools like Statsbot, which integrates right into Slack to alert product or editorial teams to important data, like business benchmarks or big dips or spikes in user behavior.

Social Media’s Challenge to Journalistic Norms and Values during a Terror Attack: Digital Journalism: Vol 5, No 9
Over the past decade, the frequency of terror attacks around the world has increased. In the context of the 22 July 2011 terror attacks in Norway, social media use by citizens, and even victims, became an essential feature of reporting. Social media confronted the legacy media’s way of covering crisis events. It raised questions about traditional journalism’s ability to handle audience’s as, not only news consumers, but also producers. In the present article, we look at the ways in which the professional norms and values of traditional journalism are specifically challenged by social media use in times of terror, using the 22 July 2011 attacks as a case study. We find that Norwegian journalists initially held to their professional roles, and to the classic self-representational principles of journalism, including objectivity, autonomy and immediacy. When they integrated social media into their traditional platforms and modes of coverage, they framed it as a “source” of sorts. As the 22 July 2011 event coverage became more focused on the collective grief felt by the nation, in turn, the traditional journalistic principles of objectivity and autonomy became less relevant, enabling yet more audience participation and social media use in relation to the attack.

Social media is nothing like drugs, despite all the horror stories — Oxford Internet Institute
A recent review of past research concluded that the effect of Facebook depends on which of the platform’s features you use. A dialog with friends over Facebook messenger can improve your mood, while comparing your life to other people’s photos on the Newsfeed can do the opposite. By treating all social media sites and features as one concept, the media is oversimplifying something that is very complex.

‘I Saw the News on Facebook’ Brand Attribution when Accessing News from Distributed Environments
It is important to note that this study only explores attribution for content
that involves clicks to a news website and does not attempt to measure attribution of content
that is consumed within third-party platforms (e.g. a headline or picture within a feed, a native
video or branded instant articles or accelerated mobile pages – AMP). We recognise that this is an
important part of the picture and a limitation of this study (as is the focus on desktop/laptop-only
traffic). Still, we believe that a close focus on desktop usage where we can combine data on actual
behaviour (through tracking) with data on recall (through our survey) presents a valuable insight
into where and to what extent different users recognise and remember the brands that provide
the news that they use, even when they have arrived at it via search engines or social media (rather
than by going direct to the provider).

Sharing News Online: Social media news analytics and their implications for media pluralism policies: Digital Journalism: Vol 0, No 0
While the term churnalism in this special issue speaks to the negative impacts of extensive news re-use, one pervasive form of news redistribution, social media news sharing, has had the more positive connotations of creative engagement, political participation and cross-promotion. Yet this reading of commendary culture is, as José Van Dijck suggests, largely ideological, anchored in the Silicon Valley rhetorics that support the data capture, data mining and behavioural advertising activities of social media businesses. Our paper critically analyses journalisms’ increasing dependence on social media news-sharing analytics and the implications for news media diversity. We first examine how sharing analytics function as a novel form of news commodification, influencing reporting and editorial practices, with possible implications for news media diversity. We then map the news-sharing ecology, looking at the interlinked business models, ownership patterns and industrial power of social news intermediaries such as Facebook, Twitter, Gigya, Chartbeat and Newswhip, and how these relationships reinforce the significance of analytics to news production. Finally, we propose how the use of news analytics could also help in tracking the changes wrought by social media news sharing, particularly in developing a media policy framework for monitoring digital news diversity and pluralism.

Social Media, Surveillance, and News Work: On the apps promising journalists a “crystal ball”: Digital Journalism: Vol 0, No 0
Social media platforms are becoming an indispensable resource for journalists. Their use involves both direct interaction with the platforms themselves and, increasingly, the use of specialist third-party apps to find, filter, and follow content and contributors. This article explores some of the ways that social media platforms, and their technological ecosystems, are infusing news work. A range of platforms and apps—including Geofeedia, Spike, and Twitter—were critically examined, and their use by trainee journalists (N = 81) analysed. The results reveal how journalists can—and do—surveil social network users and their content via sophisticated, professional apps that are also utilised by the police and security forces. While journalists recognise the value of such apps in news work, they also have concerns, including about privacy and popularism. Although the participants in this study thought the apps they used could help with verification, there were warning signs that an over-reliance on the technology could develop, dulling journalists’ critical faculties.

Engaging the Audience in a Digitised Television Production Process: A “hierarchy of influences” approach: Journalism Practice: Vol 0, No 0
This article discusses producer practices and the reasons why they engage their audience in the production process. In a digitised media context, audiences have become more visible, mainly through social media, and have more means to participate. Our research deconstructs the production process of a particular television programme by means of the “hierarchy of influences” model, which separates micro and macro levels that influence production. It draws on in-depth interviews with all editors of Flemish current affairs programme De Afspraak (The Appointment) and on a three-month participatory observation. We conclude that immersive ways of engaging the audience are applied in our specific case. More broadly, we argue that although practices change, pre-existing norms and values about the television audience remain central to how producers engage their audience through digital and social media.

Shoveling Tweets: An Analysis of the Microblogging Engagement of Traditional News Organizations
This study analyzed the adoption and use of the microblogging platform Twitter by newspapers
and television stations in the U.S. in 2009 and 2010. The results of a content analysis show that
the use of social bookmarking tools on news organizations’ websites and the adoption of Twitter
have become important tools in news distribution. However, the study also reveals that news
organizations rarely use Twitter as a community-building tool and that shovelware still dominates the
Twitter feeds. The use of the main Twitter channels has not developed beyond the utilization as a
promotional tool.

The evolution of The Economist’s social media team – Severe Contest – Medium
For some time, our team focused mostly on reaching new audiences across social media platforms by publishing as much content as possible. Over the past year, we’ve invested more time and resources into engaging with readers on Economist.com and elsewhere, because these are the types of activities we believe will help build loyalty and hopefully encourage readers to subscribe.
On Medium, we launched Inside The Economist and Correspondent’s Notebook to help readers understand the people and processes behind the red and white logo. At a time when Americans’ trust in mainstream media has fallen to an all-time low, we think that these series can help improve transparency and bring us closer to readers.

The News User on Social Media: A comparative study of interacting with media organizations on Facebook and Instagram: Journalism Studies: Vol 0, No 0
Online trends and platforms come and go, and media professionals have historically shown a keen interest in adopting novel modes of content distribution in order to capture the interest of the elusive online audience. This paper provides insights into the employment of online interactivity by news media users in relation to the social media presences of a selection of Norwegian media outlets. Adopting a comparative approach, the study features analysis of data from online mainstay Facebook and from the comparably novel Instagram platform. Among other things, results suggest that the previously noted tendency for audience members to prefer “lighter” or less-demanding modes of interaction with online news content is further strengthened—especially on the latter of the two studied platforms. Given that Instagram tends to attract comparably younger users, the implications for the news media industries as well as for future trends regarding audience interaction in relation to news are discussed.

This Is Almost Certainly James Comey’s Twitter Account
... I care deeply about privacy, treasure it. I have an Instagram account with nine followers. Nobody is getting in. They’re all immediate relatives and one daughter’s serious boyfriend. I let them in because they’re serious enough. I don’t want anybody looking at my photos. I treasure my privacy and security on the internet. My job is public safety.
Both a noble sentiment and an extremely helpful clue for tracking down the FBI director’s social media accounts. Because, presumably, if we can find the Instagram accounts belonging to James Comey’s family, we can also find James Comey.

The Attention Merchants by Tim Wu | PenguinRandomHouse.com
From the pre-Madison Avenue birth of advertising to the explosion of the mobile web; from AOL and the invention of email to the attention monopolies of Google and Facebook; from Ed Sullivan to celebrity power brands like Oprah Winfrey, Kim Kardashian and Donald Trump, the basic business model of “attention merchants” has never changed: free diversion in exchange for a moment of your consideration, sold in turn to the highest-bidding advertiser. Wu describes the revolts that have risen against the relentless siege of our awareness, from the remote control to the creation of public broadcasting to Apple’s ad-blocking OS. But he makes clear that attention merchants are always growing new heads, even as their means of getting inside our heads are changing our very nature–cognitive, social, political and otherwise–in ways unimaginable even a generation ago.

How the Media Came to Embrace Clickbait: An Internet History | KQED Future of You | KQED Science
Peretti may not have been able to create anything while at Eyebeam on the scale of his Nike experience, but he would author a 23-point manifesto that he called “Notes on Contagious Media,” expound- ing just what distinguished that variety from others. Some of it was obvious: “Contagious media is the kind of media you immediately want to share with all your friends. This requires that you take pleasure in consuming the media but also pleasure in the social process of passing it on.” Some more theoretical: “Contagious media is a form of pop conceptual art” in which “the idea is the machine that makes the art (LeWitt, 1967) and the idea is interesting to ordinary people.” For that reason, “a contagious media project should represent the simplest form of an idea. Fancy design or extraneous content made media less contagious. Anything inessential constituted a ‘payload’ that the contagion must drag along as it spreads. The bigger the payload, the more slowly the entire project spreads.” Peretti had more or less made himself the world’s expert on contagious media, but the recognition of peers was not enough; the measure of his success would be the ability to generate traffic. “For the artist, a work can be celebrated even if the only people who like it are a small group of curators and collectors,” he wrote. “For the contagious media designer, all that matters is how other people see the work. If people don’t share the work with their friends, it is a failure regardless of the opinion of the creator, critics, or other elites.”
