  • social media has revitalized traditional journalism. Twitter has allowed reporters to develop their personalities and communicate directly with their followers in real time.  Facebook, especially with its recent changes, allows journalists to post stories and other content which fans can subscribe to and consume on that platform.Even small, local newspapers can compete in the breaking news world with national media, one tweet at a time, and gain a national following.
  • 1. Distribute the contentSocial media is all about sharing – and sharing drives traffic. As such Facebook and Twitter can be powerful channels for distributing content. People trust their friends more than brands. And people spend more time on social networks than anywhere else on the web.2. Create engagementContent without engagement has no – or at least low – value. Most news sites will find that content that creates engagement will have a longer average length of the user sessions. People spend more time on the content and they will move on to more of the other content of the site as well.3. Pick up news fastWhen big news events occur there are no better place to keep track during the first hours than in social media.In fact social media is a great tool for professional journalists to pick up news. Big news and live events. Uprisings in Libya. Monitoring your beat.4. Dialogue with readersSocial media forces us to change our way of thinking – from journalism being a “one-way-communication” to looking at our profession as a two-way dialogue.5. Build brand valueThis is the more overriding reason: How a news company uses social media influences the brand value of the company.
