The future of the news industry as it stands, is somewhat uncertain. As new tools emerge for discussing and creating news content, newspapers must adapt to keep up with the changing trends.
But the more that these social platforms develop, the more newspapers lose control over their content and power to set the news agenda.
While many have recognised this as an opportunity, there are still many publishers that are failing to adapt to the two-way dialogue and changing news industry.
Those that do, risk getting left behind as they lose eyeballs to more socialised newspapers. The New York Times has just launched a new project that shows the future of news is in crowdsourcing and collaboration.
