I wanted to build this website for my box project because I have been amazed by the rapid progression of Journalism because of social and digital media. We went from watching the news on our televisions in the morning or at night to carrying a live stream of news in our pockets. Thanks to cellular telephones we as a society are "connected" at all times of the day.
Different Materials means a different approach and ultimately a different product. It is likely that there will be a merging of professional journalists and citizen journalists. This way the public will have access to the firsthand experiences available to us through social media with a factual foundation provided by journalists
Journalists will have to continue to adapt to the drastic changes that have occurred to their industry and embrace the new digital tools afforded to them. The only way to move is forward.
