Twenty years ago, the news of the trend were provided by CBS, NBC, ABC and a handful of national newspapers. Then, in 1980, Ted Turner created the news from the cable network (CNN). For the first time, news were delivered on an hourly basis rather than daily. Since then, other cable news enthusiasts have emerged, including Fox News and MSNBC. These organizations dominate the new airway cable. Today, however, and even more powerful, it appeared to transmit new ones: internet.
Internet has many advantages. It’s instantaneous. It has an unlimited number of citizen reporters. Finally, it becomes universally ubiquitous in all cultures. The press cycle brought by 24 hours a day, 7 hours a day, 7 days a week, cable selling points have requested an inexhaustible news source regardless of quality or voracity.
Since then, our news consumption has become an addiction. The internet information sites literally destroyed the old trend press model. In today’s environment, journalism often suffers because of the rigorous requirements to simply publish a story before the competition. The news that broke more than an hour ago are sometimes considered old. Stories rarely stay current for more than 24 hours. When they do, it’s a story that is classified on the basis of traffic on the information site rather than the one that affects your daily life.
If an information organization is to survive, it must constantly publish new stories. With the Internet capable of responding instantly to all forms of information, and with mass distribution channels available for the average person, Internet literally leads the news.
Like snowballs ride the descent the speed does not slow down but increases. We now have massive social networking sites such as Twitter and Facebook that can easily reach millions of readers in seconds. These sites can lead a new in a national or international walking in minutes. At no time in our history, 140 characters were able to do or break the national fortunes. Now they can.
Watch more recent events surrounding the “Arab Spring”. Thousands of middle people reported on events occurring within their borders. Most of the news dissemination has been made through text messages and social networks. The events were really coordinated and reported through the use of these networks. The indigenous governments have endorsed. Only now now how governments react.
The recent black of Cellular Tour sites in San Francisco to stop a planned event is a premonition of what we can hope to see more than an increase in the generation of news based on the Internet.
