With the rise of so many new technologies and advancements, companies and professions, have been struggling to re-create themselves to fit modern society and its demands.
Unfortunately, Journalism has become one of those mediums that many suspect will have to fight to survive in this day and age. Many people have claimed that Journalism is dying.
Of course, this news is terrifying for Journalism students, like myself, who are just now breaking into the field, and will soon begin to pursue a career, at what could be a potentially dangerous time.
With all of the advancements in technology, people are becoming less patient. Journalism has always focused on keeping writing short and concise, but with the fast pace of life, people expect their news in less than a paragraph. Making traditional Journalism, difficult to compete in society.
Is it the wrong time? Or could it be the best time?
Anyone who knows me, knows I love to stay informed. I always like to be in on the latest gossip and be able to contribute and even dominate conversations about the latest news and happenings with friends and classmates.
I believe there are a lot of people like me. People will always be interested the world around them. Journalism will always be in high demand, and it is up to people looking to pursue a career in this field to find other options such as blogging, and making micro-payments for their work.
Journalism will only keep improving, in my opinion. I think the best part of the advancement in technology is the fact that it is able to become hands-on and interactive. News should be responsive, people always have opinions, or need support, all the new forms of communication can only help these things.
