A Guide to the 'Now' Revolution in News / by Alan Soon

The Now Generation


TV

We should have seen it coming.

In the pre-social news days, television was already do it — delivering the ‘now’ in its coverage of breaking news events. I was there.

Today, news isn’t news if it isn’t ‘happening now.’ The social media revolution has changed the game. News now follows you through Twitter and Facebook — curated, re-tweeted, surfaced, edited largely by friends and experts whom you trust.

Success in the modern newsroom isn’t about just breaking news, it’s about where you break it and how. The Nowledge is all about that — what social news is doing to where and how information is created, moved and distributed. And why it matters to your community.
