Media Metamorphosis: The impact of technology on journalism today.
Students and professionals in the journalism and education fields discuss the ever-evolving nature of mass communications as technology changes the platform. Technology is playing a pivotal role in the way that journalists are reporting the news. As the Internet transforms mass media, the involvement of citizen journalists weighing in on stories through blogs and other social media is becoming more prevalent.
If one wants to succeed in this field, they have to constantly adapt and have a visual mindset when telling a story. Journalists today must be creative and evolve their stories to incorporate both a print and multimedia component that is interactive and engages the viewer.
