A Practical Guide for Multimedia Journalism
Mobile and Social Media Journalism is the go-to guide for understanding how today’s journalists and news organizations use mobile and social media to gather news, distribute content, and create audience engagement. Checklists and practical activities in every chapter enable readers to immediately build the mobile and social media skills that today’s journalists need and news organizations expect.
In addition to providing the fundamentals of mobile and social media journalism, award-winning communications professional and author Anthony Adornato discusses how mobile devices and social media have changed the way our audiences consume news and what that means for journalists. The book addresses a changing media landscape by emphasizing the application of the core values of journalism—such as authentication, verification, and credibility—to emerging media tools and strategies.
A companion website (MobileandSocialMediaJournalism.com) provides resources, including examples from professional journalists, video tutorials, industry related news, and sample assignments.
Social media created for this book, including a Twitter feed (@MobileJourn) and Facebook page (fb.com/MobileandSocialMediaJournalism), give students the latest industry trends and professors tips for teaching the course.
