Journalists Are News Companies’ Most Valuable Asset - Publishing

That’s what Mike Arrington asserts, and I think he’s right (disregard the “failing old media” rhetoric): And earlier today I got a glimpse at what AOL is up to – they are hiring all the journalists being fired and laid off by the newspapers and magazines. And they now have a news room 1,500 journalists and editors strong. Amazingly, failing old media is throwing away their most valuable assets. And AOL is eagerly picking those assets up for a song. Given that NYT has gone to great lengths to avoid newsroom layoffs, I suspect they know full well how valuable their journalists are. Mike Arrington is TechCrunch’s most valuable asset, for his personal brand and for the quality of the post he writes. As Arrington points out, AOL CEO Tim Armstrong has also realized how valuable journalists are, and is aligning AOL’s new strategy with cornering the market for journalist talent.

How Twitter saved my career... and my life. There was a time when I refused to join Twitter, both because I am suspicious of anything being touted as the next. best. thing. and because I didn’t want the site consuming all of my free time.

How Twitter saved my career... and my life

When I finally began using Twitter, it was much in the same way others did: sharing my thoughts and interesting links with other users. It wasn’t until I was suddenly laid off from my job that I truly understood the power of the site and social networking. When I was first laid off from my position at a respected magazine along with a substantial number of other staff members, I was devastated. By then, Twitter had become an integral part of my day and before my supervisor could finish the call I had already tweeted: “I JUST GOT LAID OFF.

Anybody have a job?” Other journalists and colleagues who I had friended over the past several months sent knowing tweets of empathy and support, but had no jobs, only words to offer. As the months crawled by, it seemed as if I would be unemployed forever. 70 Percent of Journalists Use Social Networks to Assist Reportin. According to a new survey from Middleberg Communications and the Society for New Communications Research (SNCR), as reported in PRWeek , 70 percent of journalists said they use social networks to assist in reporting (compared to 41 percent last year).

70 Percent of Journalists Use Social Networks to Assist Reportin

This is a huge spike in one year, though it shouldn’t surprise any of us with all the lists of journalists using Twitter and other social networks. The survey also found that 69 percent of respondents go to company websites to assist in their reporting, while 66 percent use blogs, 51 percent use Wikipedia (wow), 48 percent go to online videos (double wow), and 47 percent use Twitter and other microblogging services (would have guessed higher on this one). A big part of this shift has to revolve around journalists having less help to do their jobs, while being required to produce more content across various formats in near real-time. When it comes to Twitter, 57 percent of journalists found this social medium to be credible. Les journalistes vont-ils devenir des marques grâce à Internet ?

Google's vision for the future of journalism. Google's search algorithm works on a simple principle: on the web, sites link to other authoritative sources, and the more sites link to something the more authoritative they think it is.

Google's vision for the future of journalism

That's great if you're dealing with sites that actually follow that rule – as the vast majority do. But what do you do to make your search engine useful when you have a class of websites that produce almost identical content but which barely ever link to each other? What does Google do about news websites? They generate new content all the time, sometimes using (or copying) each others' work without acknowledgement – particularly without those links to each others' sites that Google's standard algorithm relies on to measure authority. What do you do with a chunk of the web that doesn't really behave like the rest of the web?

That's the problem facing Josh Cohen, senior business product manager for Google News. Fresh angle So is Google moving away from breaking news? "Fast Flip follows a similar approach. Could community solve the journalism crisis? More fresh thoughts on journalism.

Could community solve the journalism crisis?

Over on Advertising Age, Judy Shapiro presents an interesting argument for why charging for content will fail and how journalism can save itself through community building. In a nutshell, Shapiro suggests that there is too much content and too many leaks for any sort of gated content to succeed. Instead, she says, journalists should focus on fostering community on their Web sites, an approach that would build loyalty, lower bounce rates, and offer a unique, compelling user experience.

If all works as Shapiro says, users will be more likely to purchase products or services, Web sites will be able to leverage their user base, and ad revenue will surge.
