What Is Journalism’s Place in Social Media?

This article brought up good points about the fact that social media is a tool that should be utilized by journalists and advertisers.  Just because the information is getting out quicker and any “Joe” off the street can report it, doesn’t mean people won’t seek out the truth from a trusted news source like CNN or the New York Times.

In advertising, social media is also changing things.  On commercials now, the companies tell you to visit their Facebook page instead of their website.  In the end, there are still a number of people getting payed good money to get information out their. The best thing about social media is that its free to use, but can generate income and awareness.

    God, it just never ceases to amaze me how social media has changed the world we live in. It’s unreal. But still interesting how NY Times and CNN still have their place.
