Social Media and Journalism Practice
- 1k Downloads
‘Social Media and Journalism Practice’ explores how traditional journalism practice is being disrupted by social media cultures of communication. Bossio argues that norms of journalism practice have transitioned in response to the social and technological affordances enabled by increasing use of social media. The chapter analyses specific moments of transition in some traditional norms of journalistic practice, including maintaining objectivity in reportage, using processes of verification, and finally, asserting professional autonomy over individual work practice. These transitions have enabled new forms of journalistic practice that are increasingly collaborative, and prioritise authentic and transparent processes of presenting the news.
