Journalism, printing, and news have been under fire for years, and the constant threat of social media and digital keeps them hopping just to keep up. So what has the effect of the semantic web had on the art of journalism?
Google has been reported to describe the change as the transition of search and the web from “strings to things” and “websites to people.”
How does this affect quality writers? Or does it? This interesting topic was brought to us by journalism.co in their article, “Role of journalist is changing in semantic web.”
News organizations are struggling to keep some of their best writers away from social media in an ostrich-like attempt at ignoring the real-time news audience that will go elsewhere if not fed appropriately with the data they so desire.
