Transcript of Globalisation: Modern Media News

traditional mass media "Electronic media builds up communities but also distracts us relentlessly."
- Bill Wasik (bigthink) Globalisation: Modern Media
and their meaning as a news source eb Sources http://mashable.com/2012/04/18/social-media-and-the-news/

http:// www.youtube.com/watch?v=OvhrC2eWIxw "radically break the connection between physical place and social place, making physical location much less significant for our social relationships"
- Croteau and Hoynes: Media Society: Industries, Images, and Audiences Modern Media as a news source instant, on-demand access anywhere (no local limitation) and at any time
multimedia (text, visual, audible)
often interactive (user feedback, community formation, user participation)
(one-to-many many-to-many) assassination of Osama bin Laden
- via organisation of protests in Iran in 2009
- via Whitney Houston's death in February 2012
- via better time planning
- via Facebook-group of advanced class new social media Justin & Jannes more than half of people have learned about breaking news from social media like Twitter, etc. about 46% get their news online at least 3 times a week Also, in 2012, social media revenue has surpassed that of newspapers! (U.S. or world statistics?) . . . However... Online news sources aren't always trustworthy! As information in social media usually isn't submitted by professionals. 49,1% have heard breaking news via social media that turned out to be false. BIDIRECTIONALITY on-demand
quick dissemination of news
greater diversity of ideas and viewpoints
huge chance for businesses and companies in terms of user statistics and marketing Modern Media in the news- arguments PRO NOT PRO often inaccurate or of low quality
obsolescence of professional journalism?
environmentally hazardous production of electronic devices
big internet corporations like (and of course others) can influence modern media and public opinion through market power especially to easily acquire background information of certain topics situations in disaster regions or civil war countries
(frequent during Arab Spring)
- via probably the most important website to find news: "Verteidige Dein Netz" - GoogleDeutschland Deutschland on 29th November 2012
German Bundestag voted for so-called "Leistungsschutzrecht" which should force search engines (basically Google) to pay publishers fees for displaying news search results web portals of newspapers or other media don't receive any share of this money even if they are linked on the Google homepage directly next to ads often previews of newspaper or other media web sites are shown on the Google homepage next to Google ads which often provide enough information for users, stopping them from visiting the newspapers' web sites and viewing their ads earns 7,5 billion € only through ad-placement on websites or redirection to other sites via the Google homepage Introduction of an
Ancillary Copyright for press publishers "Publishing costs time and money. For this reason, I can understand the demand for related rights for publishers. The Federal Government is therefore currently working on a bill to adapt German copyright law even more to the requirements of a modern information society. [...] We are striving for a balanced solution that takes account of the just interests of all those involved."
- Chancellor Angela Merkel GoogleDeutschland's reaction to the Ancillary Copyright An intervention into German politics by an American corporation using its market power by encouraging internet users to oppose that bill. finding news and other information will not be stopped, one could still read news on the web sites themselves "Die Panikmache von Google entbehrt jeglicher Grundlage. Die Behauptung des Suchmaschinen-Konzerns, das Suchen und Finden von Informationen im Netz werde erschwert, ist unseriös. Die private Nutzung, das Lesen, Verlinken und Zitieren bleiben möglich wie bisher."
- BDZV-Sprecherin Anja Pasquay Bundesverband Deutscher Zeitungsverleger "Lobbyschlacht"
as much as Google the publishing houses want to maximise their profits
ancillary copyright is indeed a disadvantage for users as it is complicating the intellectual property right even more
but: interventions and controversials between lobbies like this can be a threat to shaping of a public opinion
- Verein "Digitale Gesellschaft" Google addresses users with the words "Defend Your Internet",
intentionally hiding and whitewashing its own motives and public image So what do you think? BACK TO SOCIAL MEDIA IN THE NEWS Some facts about social media in the news Which might be an appropriate reason for publishing houses such as Axel Springer to promote an ancillary copyright.
