2 videos: How social media changed the journalist’s day; and making money from content

Here are 2 very interesting videos from a recent talk by Karl Schneider, Head of editorial development at B2B publisher Reed Business Information, at UCA Farnham. In the first Schneider takes a look at how the typical journalist’s day has changed – I particularly like the concept of previously only ‘20%’ of a journalist’s activity being visible, and 80% invisible, but that equation being reversed with the arrival of collaborative social media.

In the second video Schneider likens online publishing to exhibitions and events, rather than traditional print and broadcasting models:

    Hi Paul

    Funny how things happen in clusters. I agree with Karl. I was presenting to Sport UK CEOs Convention CEOs on tuesday and tried to give an academic perspective on social networks (SN) citing Hobbes et al (intelligent Commonwealth).

    That based on traditional finance models, it was bust because your ASSETS + LIABILITIES = NEGATIVE. However if you sub “cash” which you can’t recoup online anyway, for the notion of “free”, and move your constituents to offline activities, you stand to potentially gain more than just a high friend quotient.

    Mixing, Videojournalism, SN and broadband web there’s some interesting modeling via trend extrapolation to be viewed.

    p.s the aspect of what we as journos do behind the scene which has viewer value was aptly captured by BBC GLR circa 1991, with subsequently Chris Evans in zoo radio and zoo TV. Sorry name drop I worked at the station at the time and the transparency of behind- the-scenes was often more interesting than the stuff traditionalists would have wanted you to see.
