The ever-evolving Digital World has already embraced us tight. And we often hear around us that “Print/TV media is dying a fast death.” But while it is obvious that digital revolution has changed the journalism world for better, we cannot ignore the importance and uniqueness of other forms of Journalism.


But then again comes the question, “Why buy a newspaper with stale news when you can get the minute-old details online? Websites, apps, social media updates, etc. have taken over the journalism world by storm.


And this world is based on only one single aim or principle: Bigger Audience for News. The more the visit on the news portal/website, the more the agency/site/portal/app etc. can charge the advertisers for advertising. This means the readers pay not in money but in attention through their clicks.


This means that field of journalism is expected to develop in the following two ways:


  • Journalists have to double up as PR representatives

Journalists will be required to promote themselves as well as their content online. And this has to be done by not just being active as journalists but as social media persons as well. One has to be social media-conscious when any piece has to be penned or a video has to be made. One has to understand the pulse of the digital audience.


  • Change in Writing Techniques

The style has to be crisper as well as should have some viral element in it (meaning an element that makes it widely shared on social media sites). Here the negative aspect is that the border between journalism and blogging is very blurred; but then blogging is an opinion piece while journalism has to be supported by facts/quotes/figures, etc.


What does it mean for Journalism Students?

It simply means more jobs if you know how to tap the pulse of a digital audience. While there are only limited newspapers, TV channels etc., new websites are coming up every now and then and scaling up the ladder of popularity through good journalism. This straight away means more opportunities for Journalism Students. There is always scope for those who practice good writing and for them there is never looking back.
