10 Trends to Be Thankful For 2017


Published on

The news industry suffered some setbacks in 2017, including the continued rise of fake news and a growing number of attacks on the press, but there’s also much happening in the industry that we can be thankful for.

Newspaper websites in the United States have seen an increase in paid subscribers — The New York Times has grown to more than 2 million paid digital-only customers, while The Wall Street Journal passed the 1 million mark — and countless experts have sung the praises of print when it comes to advertising power. New media products, like The Washington Post’s The Lily, have emerged and shown that there’s a rabid news audience looking for content that appeals to them on a more personal level, and that it’s possible to launch a profitable news product in 2017. Companies like Facebook and Google have committed to helping combat fake news and support real news providers through new initiatives. And that’s just in the U.S. market.

Worldwide, the news industry has seen a lot of good news. The World Association of Newspapers and News Publishers (WAN-IFRA) shared some of the best news from across the globe in their annual World Press Trends report. We’ve compiled some of the best bits of news into a handy infographic so you can see just what there is to be thankful for this holiday season.
