New Book: «Journalism with a future»



The reconfiguration of the communication ecosystem in the network society has not only made the ubiquity of communication a reality, but it has opened the doors to a new historical stage of journalism. The emergence and popularization of the Internet, from the arrival of the web and finally driven by the social web, has left behind the communication model from one to many to enter the scenario of a communication from many to many, in which accessibility and mobility feed a model that multiplies the production of content and a greater role of active audiences. On the threshold of the so-called fourth industrial revolution, intelligent automation announces a new phase for global communication.

Journalism, meanwhile, seeks a path of its own that allows it to fulfill its role in the network society. While the media industry tries to enter, with unequal successes, into the new ecosystem and the digital native media build renewed models that make their model sustainable, questions and challenges are multiplied both for professionals and for entrepreneurs in network projects and for society, which has placed journalism at the centre of the information landscape. All social actors know that the future is not written and new ways must be built on a day-to-day basis. From the trajectory harvested for more than a century and a half by journalism as we understand it today, with a good heritage, although punctuated by loss of credibility due to bas practices in different places and contexts, numerous innovative projects, professional groups and researchers in journalism and communication studies show alternatives for new times. In the middle of important debates, in a renewed social, political and economic panorama, the journalism of the network society points ways that lead to quality journalism for the immediate future.
