The Intersection of Journalism and Social Media: How Traditional Media Is Shaping Our New Media Consumption

Boston World Partnerships explores the role of traditional journals in the current state of news production and consumption. In light of a significant increase in user-generated, real-time reporting and mass content creation through various social media streams, we have convened an expert panel to shed light on current news trends and to provide foresight on the media industry.

Guest Speakers

Martin Baron, Editor of The Boston Globe
Joshua Benton, Founding Director of the Nieman Journalism Lab at Harvard University
Nasser Weddady, Director of Outreach of the American Islamic Congress
Jules Pieri, Founder and CEO of the Daily Grommet

Our speakers will dive into the interaction and interdependence of traditional journalism and social media – with a reference to the recent phenomenon in news production related to the political uprising in the Middle East.
Some of the questions we’ll address are:

* How has the role of traditional media changed or remained the same since the ascent of social media?
* How has a traditional journal like The Boston Globe addressing the emergence of user-generated content and real-time reporting?
* What evolution or realization of roles occupied by various media channels can we expect in the near (3-5 years) and far future (25-30 years)?
