How is Social Media Changing the News Landscape?

In the age of Twitter and other social media networks, where anyone can “break news,” how is traditional journalism changing, who are the true journalists, and what is the difference between news and information? ┬áThose were just a few of the interesting questions examined at The Media Landscape: How Social Journalism Is Changing the News Industry, a panel discussion hosted by BU’s public relations office on Oct. 12.

Moderated by BU alum and founder of Help a Reporter Out (HARO), Peter Shankman (COM ’94), the panel featured experts from the traditional news world, PR and the blogosphere, and included Tom Fiedler, Dean of the College of Communication (COM); Lisa van der Pool, broadcast editor and reporter at The Boston Business Journal; Adam Gaffin, founder and editor of Universal Hub; and Steve Quigley, Associate Professor of Public Relations at COM.
