The Evolution of News

Published: 9/2/2009 1:07:51 PM

It's been fascinating to watch how the dissemination of news has changed from standardized news outlets to social networks such as Facebook and Twitter.

The trend will no doubt continue, but I wonder if these services are really more focused on "life streams" rather than hard news.  Sure, news is included in and passed around by millions of users, but the news has to be generated and reported on by someone.  Since users value credibility, there will no doubt be many instances of non-credible news getting passed around these networks, thus reducing the value of these networks as hard news sources and more as lifestream sources.
