Real-time Journalism: il futuro della notizia

Ovvero: il coinvolgimento del lettore nell'era del giornalismo post-industriale.

"Il tempo della notizia – news cycle – è passato dalle 24 ore ai 24 secondiIl real-time crea coinvolgimento alla luce - non a dispetto - di questo cambiamento"

Real-time Journalism - Il futuro della notizia fra liveblogging e coinvolgimento esplora il mondo del giornalismo in diretta e lancia la sfida dell'engagement del lettore: unica, vera unità di misura del mondo digitale.  

In parallelo con la pubblicazione di questo mio primo saggio in formato ebook, viene lanciata questa pagina come primo blog collettivo italiano sul tema, e approdo naturale per tutti i naviganti italiani nel mondo del giornalismo real-time. Consideratelo come un dialogo in tempo reale, invece che una monolitica vulgata:  un viaggio comune, non un soliloquio: così come auspico che sia il giornalismo del futuro.

Siete invitati - tecnici, giornalisti, curiosi e lettori - a commentare e inviare spunti di riflessione. 

Richiedete l'accesso alla piattaforma, e vi sarà dato. Potete usare il comodo box qui sotto. L'hashtag per la discussione è #realtimejourno: gli spunti colti su Twitter nutriranno questo liveblog, e viceversa. La mia email è lillo@ilmonella.com. 

  • Having real-time skills shows you're already there. While they aren't hard to learn, it makes a difference when hiring because an editor wants his/her job to be easier. Having someone coming in, already knowing how to do it and having a positive attitude about it -- that all makes a difference.

  • In line with that, a question for Steve from Twitter

  • Hey guys, my question is for Steve. You've recently said that you'll hire a good reporter who is learning digital tools over an excellent reporter who isn't. Do you have any real life example of how this has worked out for you in the past? e.g. when digital skills have contributed a lot more to coverage than being an excellent reporter. Thanks.

  • Good question, Katy. Twitter proved itself useful to journalists five or six years ago. I worry about the mindset of a journalist who still is not using Twitter, however good an old-school reporter he or she is.

  • That reporter is going to get his or her ass kicked on a major story soon (if it hasn't already happened).

  • I'm pretty good at teaching old-school journalism skills, and I think I can have an excellent digital journalist faster working with someone who's willing to learn than with someone who's resisting learning.

  • I'm not going to name names, Katy, but I have seen excellent experienced journalists hold themselves back because they are unwilling to use new tools.

  • And I've seen pretty good journalists blossom into excellent journalists because they are eager to learn.

  • I'd rather have a journalist on the way up working for me than one on the way down, even if the declining on is right now at a higher altitude.

  • Il coinvolgimento della propria fan base in tempo reale è il futuro. 

    Per tutti.  Anche per loro...



    La presenza sui social media è ottima. Interagire, in tempo reale, su ogni genere di piattaforma, supporto, network. Questo il mantra.

    C'è un solo problema: è tutto traffico 'rubato' al sito internet del Milan. Come 'riportare' sul proprio sito tutta questa conversazione? 

    Grazie a piattaforme come ScribbleLive, CoverItLive, Livefyre, RebelMouse, LiveblogPro, Storify, Wordpress VIP, NetDialogue, SourceFabric etc. 

    Un'analisi critica per ognuna di esse: prossimamente (o meglio, lunedì), nelle vostre edicole digitali.

  • Non solo coinvolgimento in pagina: il real-time fa aumentare anche le visite

    Si parla di aziende e brands, ma è indicativo: questa la dedico a tutti quei giornalisti incontrati finora, costretti dal mercato a pensare ancora negli stessi termini del 2003, ovvero: valore=pagine viste.

    Beh, non più. Non per molto.

    Livefyre found that 82% of businesses have increased user engagement as a result of curating social activity about their brand, and integrating it into their Web sites and mobile apps.

    Plus, 58% of respondents reported using social curation to connect directly with their audience, while 57% of respondents said they have seen an increase in site traffic as a result.

    Of the 73% of survey respondents using real-time, social applications -- including sharing widgets, real-time comments, live blogs and live chat applications -- 88% have increased user engagement as a result, Livefyre found. In that group, 54% cited connecting directly with their audience as a key benefit, followed by 42% citing increases in average visit duration, or time-on-site.

    Also of note, 41% of survey respondents reported seeing an increase in site traffic as a result of making their sites more social.

    Tratto da Mediapost, citando una ricerca 'di parte' della piattaforma LiveFyre. E' una di quelle analizzate nell'ebook. Una di quelle con cui si crea coinvolgimento sul proprio sito internet.

  • I quotidiani all digital italiani sono con le pezze al c... Perché?

    Qui Santoro centra il problema....


    Non è solo questione di qualità dei contenuti o di indipendenza delle testate, che infatti i lettori riconoscono sia a  «Linkiesta» che a «Il Post», ma di trattamento dell’informazione, di relazione con i lettori e di tipologia dell’offerta.

    Qualcuno cortesemente mi spieghi, ad esempio, sempre con il massimo rispetto per tutti coloro che svolgono un lavoro onesto, perchè mai dovrei andare a leggere le notizie su «Blitz Quotidiano» invece che su «la Repubblica» o «Il Corriere» online.

    Se avete la risposta avete la soluzione al problema, in caso contrario il problema è serio.


    Ecco il post sui conti dei quotidiani online italiani. Interessante il dibattito su Twitter con Marco Giovannelli di VareseNews, citato come eccezione virtuosa, che parte lancia in resta: 





    To be continued... hope so!

  • Fact-checking in tempo reale: una directory di strumenti utili

    Ci sono dozzine di strumenti per il fact-checking online (solo per il panorama italiano, mi vengono in mente 3-4 alternative validissime): quando si copre una storia in tempo reale, è necessario sapere dove andare a cercare per verificare fatti, dati, contenuto social etc. con velocità.

    Josh Stearns si autodefinisce “verification junky" e lavora per Free Press: ha lanciato di recente una directory online comprensiva per raccogliere tutti gli strumenti atti a "verificare, fare fact-checking e stabilire il grado di affidabilità di contenuto social e inviato dai lettori".

    Verification Junkie is one contribution to that work. I hope you enjoy it.

    Per parte mia, consiglio di affidarsi ai servizi di professionisti, come i ragazzi di Storyful

    Per fortuna c'è in giro qualcuno che sa cosa fare quando nota troppa attività twitterina sotto un certo hashtag: capitalizzare.

  • Tutto molto post-moderno.



    by lillo on Aug 5, 2013 at 11:07 AM

    A Droste effect pointing at the accumulation of social networks, and showing that while these platforms allow us to share information, they also result in its circularity.

    Nel 21esimo secolo, gran parte dei giornalisti non creano più contenuto originale, ma fanno piuttosto da curatori. [...Oggi, il mondo dei media si espande in molteplici direzioni, diventando veloce e volatile mentre ogni utente può condividere informazioni con la propria rete di contatti.  
    Di conseguenza, il valore aggiunto nel giornalismo non sta nel fatto (verificato), bensì dipende da quanto ogni fatto sia connesso con altri, messo in prospettiva. Avere una mentalità critica rispetto ai fatti raccontati è tanto importante quanto descriverli - tanto nel contenuto, quanto nella forma. In poche parole: il giornalismo è diventato postmoderno. 

    Tratto (molto postmodernamente) da qui.

    The three panelists are from a diverse range of backgrounds - we have a social media editor, a beat reporter and a multimedia journalist - so they’ll be able to offer some different perspectives on the industry.

  • The time commitment. The 24/7/365 news cycle means you're basically on deadline constantly. Ten, 15 years ago you were always on call as a beat writer -- but now the need to produce a story immediately or a Tweet as you report is paramount. Content is constant. That means sometimes you cover news as it is happening, not just for the next day's paper when you have a chance to synthesize information for an article.

  • I started doing online journalism back in 1999. I have gone through all stages from there: The very beginning trying to establish sports journalism online was quite a challenge in itself in a traditional broadcaster environment.

  • For me, the biggest change has been Twitter...it's changed everything for journalism and how people obtain the news. Gone are the newswires and gone are the days when news organisations could dictate when stories broke. Now anyone can break a story and reach millions of people, which is why Derrick's point about needing to be 24/7 is so relevant. Everything is around the live as it happens as Twitter makes it feel out of date so quickly.

  • The community is very special when it comes to sports. Fans are very enthusiastic, the use very open and direct, sometimes strong language. And very often they are in favour a certain team or athlete.

  • Good question Kate, it's been a tough nut to crack for us. But we've found the best way is to make it part of the conversations we are having elsewhere. Social Media is a huge part of that, but just as much of it is broadcast as well. We have the advantage of hours of live programming to work with and all the personalities within them. We've tried to bring a flavour of them into our Scribble activity and create something that feels like you are talking to them, then we invite viewers to do just that.
