Would the World of Online News and Social Media News Go Out of Business

when the last newspaper has folded?
[I don't think that will happen for quite a long time]

Markos Moulitsas wrote on Daily Kos

"Whenever we debate the future of newspapers, inevitably someone asks, "if they go out of business, where will blogs get their stories?" That's a companion argument to "who will conduct investigative journalism"?"

Out of curiosity, I decided to see where the news we discuss on this site came from the past week, from Monday, April 6, to Sunday, April 12. If we linked to a source that got its information from another site, we followed the links until we got to the original source of the reporting ("secondary" source). In other words, I wanted to categorize the original source of information for every (front page) post on the site.

While newspapers were the most common source of information, they accounted for just 123 out of 628 total original information sources, or just shy of 20 percent.

Here's the detailed results of that link inventory:

Newspapers: 102 primary, 21 secondary
Blogs: 83 primary, 19 secondary
Television network: 69 primary, 14 secondary
Online news organizations: 54 primary, 5 secondary
Magazines and journals: 36 primary
Books: 6 primary
AP and other Wire: 5 secondary
Radio: 4 primary .... "

Social Median - Topic-based News Networks Deliver

In 2006 we started some topic-based bookmarks on CrispyNews for

- B2B-Media
- Citizen Journalism & Social Media
- Magazine-Business
- Marketing
- Zeitung mit Zukunft (a project with Thomas Wanhoff)

Unfortunately CrispyNews decided in January 2007 that they had made enough experience and they want to move this solution to custom tailored, paid solutions for corporate.

Last week we learned from Lars Hinrich that XING has acquired Social | Median (and founder and CEO Jason Goldberg) as news are getting more tailored and relevant (they call it filtered) to the user if the news are hand-picked and delivered by 'friends' via networks. With Crispy-News we worked with bookmarks, now we work via feed from selected sources by tags / keywords and as Xing wants to make this an important part of their application platform, we feel safe enough to give it a try (again) ... you can joint me here.

We started with a 'B2B Media + Marketing News Network' and invite you to add subjects / topics you feel relevant and resources you want to be included in the news gathering process ...

check it out! And if you like, what you see, please joint in!

We welcome anyone to joint as collaborator and we would be happy to start and/or join other networks in other subjects close to our work.

I still wonder, why classical media and marketing companies seem to care so little about community / network based news, search, procurement, sales and marketing … and leave all the opportunities to outsiders / newcomers.

Online Journalismus Review (OJR) No More

From Robert Niles at Facebook:

"After a decade, the University of Southern California's Annenberg School for Communication has decided to cease publication of The archives will remain online, but there will be no new articles.

One of OJR's goals over the years has been to help mid-career journalists make a successful transition from other media to online reporting and production. I'm pleased to say that USC Annenberg will continue to provide support in that area, through the Knight Digital Media Center. I encourage OJR readers to click over to and its blogs, if you are not already a regular reader there.

The decision to close OJR means that I have left the University of Southern California. But I am not going offline. I will continue to write, daily, about new media and journalism at my new website, . I hope that many of you will click over and visit me there.

Finally, on behalf of OJR, I want to thank you. Thank you for your readership, tips, corrections, kind words and support. And I want to wish you success as you work to build engaging, informative and sustainable websites, to better serve your audiences."

I'm sorry, to hear and have subscripted the Sensibletalk feed !

Tribune Papers get a Print, Web and Business Model Redesign

reports John Koblin at the The New York Observer

"What has become clear as we have gotten intimately familiar with the business is that the model for newspapers no longer works," said Sam Zell in a memo he just sent out to Tribune staffers

1. We are not giving readers what they want, and

2. We are printing bigger papers than we can afford to print

Full text here

So everything is getting trashed and reworked! There are going to be redesigned newspapers, redesigned Web sites, redesigned business structures ..." more

Remember that 'Chicago Tribune Staff Meeting' just three and half months ago?

via Paul Conley The Model (for B2B publishing) no longer works'

Hey Paul, I really wonder where you encounter such kind of B2B Publishing environment …

"- journalists with a skill set from the 1970s and an emotional resistance to change;
- workflow rules that focus on producing weekly or monthly products rather than real-time news;
- advertising sales people who are paralyzed by the idea of learning Web metrics;
- circulation departments that are still worried that Google is delivering them the "wrong" readers while somehow "stealing" content;
- entire publications that seem dedicated to producing content only for some target market of 72-year olds that have "always read us" while refusing to lead their readers into a new era ..."

In the States? WOW! I never came across such an attitude here in Germany, ... and anyway, in Wiesbaden Miriam Meckel just comforted our publisher with the message, that all this changes doesn't touch the core of B2B publishing - on Video (in German)

NAA Report: Newspapers' Online Video Survey

Last week the NAA (Newspaper Association of America) publish a survey on the practice of 213 newspapers in the booming field of online video reporting.

Key findings:

In addition to running content from the Associated Press or other wire services, most newspapers are putting resources into producing their own, locally focused, original video content. Many newspapers reported a strong focus on local news and local sports videos. The majority of newspaper Web sites in all circulation groups also accepts user-generated video.

Editing and Publishing
Flash video is overwhelmingly the most popular format for newspaper Web sites, followed (distantly) by Windows Media. At many newspapers the online staff is responsible for editing and posting video content.

As the chart below shows, print journalists are picking up video cameras. Many newspapers reported photographers and reporters are more responsible for shooting video content than the online staff.

Sample chart 1:
Which of the following areas are included in your newspaper’s online video offerings?

Sample chart 2:
Who at your newspaper shoots video for the Web site?

Dass in Deutschland (3.039) Redakteure und Freie Journalisten das Thema Videos im Web noch "differenzierter" sehen, hatte der auch der letzte Medien-Trendmonitor von newsaktuell gezeigt. Auf die Frage: Immer mehr Nachrichtenportale zeigen heute auch Videos im Netz. Welche Aussagen treffen zu?

Der Anteil von knapp 50 % der Antworten, die Videos bereits heute als ganz normale Inhalte bezeichnen, ist wohl auch etwas beflügelt durch die Antworten der Kollegen aus dem Bereich Rundfunk (60%) und Online & Multimedia (63 %).

Xing, the new media - Xing der Mainstream und Online Media Schreck

Die Position der klassischen Medien sei bedroht (was nicht ganz neu in einer bisher nicht zielführenden Debatte ist). Doch, so Julius Endert (Handelsblatt Online) in seinem Beitrag, nicht Onlinemedien schlüpften in die Rolle (übernehmen die Funktionen) von Zeitungen, Magazinen und Fernsehsendern, sondern die neuen sozialen Netze im Internet, ala XING ... mehr

"Its goal is to gather in one place as much data as possible about all the major sectors of journalism, to identify trends, mark key indicators, note areas for further inquiry and provide a resource for citizens, journalists and researchers.

For each area we have produced original research and aggregated existing data into a narrative. Statistical data also exists in an interactive format (see our index of charts), which allows users to customize their own graphics. This year, we also offer A Year in the News, a content analysis of more than 70,000 stories from 48 news outlets across five media sectors; a Survey of Journalists, produced with the Pew Research Center for the People and the Press; a Special Report on the Future of Advertising and a content study of Citizen Media Sites, 64 in 15 communities.

The study is the work of the Project for Excellence in Journalism, a non political, non partisan research institute that is part of the Pew Research Center in Washington. The study is funded by the Pew Charitable Trusts and was produced with the help of a number of partners, including Rick Edmonds of the Poynter Institute and a host of industry readers.”

Wiki Journalism - Are Wikis the New Blogs?

The taxonomy of Wiki Journalism by Paul Bradshaw. Paul present the result on his wiki journalism studies last week at the Future of Newspaper Conference, Cardiff

WIKI Journalism - Are wikis the new blogs?

He identifies five types of wiki journalism:

  • ‘Second draft’ wikis: a ‘second stage’ piece of journalism, during which readers can edit an article produced in-house (Wired article, Esquire, LA Times wikitorial)
  • Crowdsourcing wiki: a means of covering material which could not have been produced in-house (probably for logistical reasons), but which becomes possible through wiki technology (San Diego Tribune’s AmpliPedia; Wired How To Wiki)
  • Supplementary wiki: a supplement to a piece of original journalism, an ‘add-on’: “A tab to a story that says: Create a wiki for related stories” (Francisco, 2006) (CNET’s India Tech Wiki; parts of the Wired How To Wiki)
  • Open wiki: an open space, whose subject matter is decided by the user, and where material may be produced that would not otherwise have been commissioned (Wikinews)
  • Logistical wiki: a wiki limited to in-house contributors which enables multiple authorship, and may also facilitate transparency, and/or an ongoing nature (Dewey Answers; N&Opedia)
