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. 

  • Big hectic day: #transferwindow across Europe #realtimejourno keeping my eyes wide open to get ready for fantasy football session tomorrow
  • Puglia coast to coast 

    Un viaggio a tappe in pedalò 
    nella splendida regione pugliese, su Repubblica Bari. 

    Apulia Slow Coast è un’avventura a pedali, in cui un viaggiatore barbuto e il suo pedalò evaderanno dalla frenesia della vita quotidiana e sfideranno la lunghissima costa pugliese, per scoprirla da un punto di vista diverso. Com’è la terra vista dal mare?

    A seguire Michele nella sua impresa un collettivo di filmaker e comunicatori sedotti dall’idea di poter osservare la Puglia da un punto di vista differente, dall’orizzonte nuovo a cui l’omino barbuto andrà incontro. Per 15 giorni il nostro pedalatore guarderà la costa dal lato del sole al tramonto, incontrerà persone, ascolterà storie, si muoverà lentamente e rifletterà un po’: quanto è cambiata una regione che è penisola nella Penisola? Una terra che propende verso l’Oriente pur rimanendo attaccata alla Vecchia Europa, che ha saputo accogliere nuovi visitatori nei secoli e che ha bisogno di ripensare sé stessa oggi, guardandosi dal di fuori, da una prospettiva inedita e piena di sorprese.

    Apulia slow coast diventerà un film documentario, una produzione indipendente che racconterà il territorio costiero pugliese attraverso questo viaggio in pedalò. Tanti ospiti racconteranno il loro pezzetto di costa con le sue meraviglie, le sue contraddizioni, le sue ferite, i suoi abitanti.

    Racconteremo in diretta il viaggio e la traversata attraverso video diari, reportage fotografici e il live blogging. Tutti questi materiali saranno il cuore del film documentario omonimo, Apulia Slow Coast, la storia di un moderno Ulisse che prova a ritrovarsi nelle acque del mare Adriatico.

  • La discussione si apre...  e si chiude, spero. Qui un resoconto. 




    Proprio come sto facendo qui: un resoconto della conversazione finora, pulita pulita, facile da seguire.

    Aggiungerei: perchè non fornire questo servizio Storify ai lettori, ma in tempo reale? D'altro canto, Storify stessa si sta muovendo a passi da gigante verso il mercato real-time storytelling, come dico nell'ebook storify.com

  • Ancora si sta a parlà di Live Tweeting come "modo poco conosciuto per fornire contenuti di valore"? Suvvia..

    by lillo on Sep 2, 2013 at 11:51 AM via Webhouseit

    Grazie a Virginia Fiume per la segnalazione di questo post, e per il commento in calce...


    Articolo utile, soprattutto perché spesso accade che il livetweet venga fatto senza conoscerne le caratteristiche e le regole. Lancio solo una provocazione: quanto tempo e energie usa un social media manager per alimentare un livetweet? Quanto traffico, in termini di tempo e pagine viste, regala a twitter in quanto sito? Sull'argomento c'è un post molto interessante di Lillo Montalto Monella, giornalista ed esperto di real time journalism per la compagnia canadese Scribble Live, che spiega esattamente questo concetto http://ilmonella.com/2013/04/0... 
    Allora forse, soprattutto alle aziende, conviene dotarsi di strumenti per un liveblogging di qualità, ben integrato con twitter.

    Su whatbaleearns.co.uk/ scopri che Bale ha bisogno di lavorare per soli 10 secondi per pagarsi il pranzo (un panino Subway da £5,60). Oppure che dopo un'ora e mezza dalla conferma ufficiale dell'avvenuto trasferimento, puo' gia' comprarsi una Suzuki Swift. 
    Fantastico,

  • The Score: notizie sportive, veloci, multimediali, solo per mobile.

    www.theglobeandmail.com

    Un ufficio a Toronto da 35 giornalisti; nessun prodotto editoriale classico, nessun articolo a fine giornata, deadline per la pubblicazione di aggiornamenti ogni 30 secondi, anche linkando ai siti dei concorrenti ("This whole newsroom is designed around trying to ‘out-help’ our competitors,” says Jonathan Savage, vice-president of products"), un flusso continuo e curato di notizie, fatti e dati, suddivisi per sport, competizioni, leghe e squadre.

    The company is operating in an odd niche. It doesn’t own any broadcast rights, but is dependent on live events to drive traffic to its app. It’s a media company, but doesn’t have any legacy business to protect as it targets the mobile market.
    Mobile is an essential – and elusive – key to the future of traditional media companies who have seen readers consuming their news on smartphones and tablets at the expense of printed products and traditional websites.


    Le storie prodotte dal team editoriale di The Score sono fatte per essere consumate solo sulla app: corte, multimediali, sociali. Contengono elementi trovati qua e la' in giro per il web, e link ad altri siti. Con l'evolversi della storia, nuovi aggiornamenti si aggiungono gli uni sugli altri. Un lavoro collaborativo, che si appoggia a quello dei blogger che hanno il compito di fare seguire l'analisi al pezzo veloce.

    Un modello sicuramente interessante, e molto aggressivo, che per ora sta pagando - visto il round di finanziamenti appena ricevuto.

  • Welcome to today's Scribble Chat on Social Networks and Communities.

    For even the most engaged users, working you're way around social networks can be difficult. New networks are popping up all the time, while trusted and true networks are constantly changing and adding new features. 

    How do you build communities based on these networks? How do you become an expert? Heck, what does it mean to be an social media expert? 

    Ask questions and make comments by logging in anonymously or using your preferred network by clicking on the "Make a comment" button above.

  • When I recommend Social Networks internally, I always push us picking the right network for the job.

    For instance - chats where we want to have a long ranging discussion in the open?

    Twitter #npraspen

    Q&A? Facebook or Reddit
    * ARi Shapiro's Q&A
    * Soraya's AMA


    Fun travelogues? User engagement projects? Right now, Tumblr:
    * she-works.tumblr.com
    * seedtoshirt.tumblr.com
    * cookyourcupboard.tumblr.com

  • Twitter, for me and as a journalists, is by far the best in terms of being able to get a sense of what the pulse of social media is at any given moment.
    Facebook is better in terms of engagement, thought, because of it's massive scale. Depending of the size of a newsroom, you might want to scale back some of what I call secondary social networks, like Vine or even Tumblr. Socl? Don't even bother (but try it!).

  • This is a great segway into my next question – which social networks are integrated into your news production? How do you ensure that you're getting all the information you need?
    Allendria 9/3/2013 4:13:58 PM
    Commenta ()
  • News production: Twitter and Tweetdeck and other clients are basic tools for all of our journalists. See our former managing editor's celebrration of such here: digitalservices.npr.org.

    We used Scribble heavily during the election season, and the inauguration and state of the union. We also use it regularly for our Oscars liveblog, and whenever we have a live concert (or last week's listening party with Neko Case).

    Other networks? We use our facebook page to source for any number of things, from people who owe student loans to people who make over 1 million dollars and pay taxes as small business, and are willing to talk on the record.

    Example: www.facebook.com

    [edit - hit enter far to soon!]

  • As for making sure we get the information we need -- this is all part of the journalistic process. We search, we verify identities, we try to make sure we have diverse sources, and we find people and sources that we trust. We also find that sourcing on social saves us from some problems as well.

  • Workflow management is a very important part of the process. To second what Kate wrote, Twitter and Tweetdeck (or Hootsuite) are integral part. Facebook management are also daily routines. For live events, we use ScribbleLive and a livestreaming service if possible, with selected Tout videos to highlight certain parts of the event. We've used rebelmouse to curate some of the highlights if the event lasts a while like this past winter's storm. www.dailyfreeman.com (NPR did too! www.poynter.org)

  • Great question, Shauna.

    Ivan, you should throw in too. We use a lot of the same tools that everyone else does - checking to make sure the account is long established, checking the network of connections and when they connected, images, posts, other places where they are referenced. We try to build up an amount of evidence that has us comfortable enough to move forward.

    That level of evidence changes based on the subject. For instance? The social media accounts of the Tsarnayev brothers, we essentially pushed for a preponderance of evidence, and went through several editors before we felt comfortable going on the air.

    A source we may use in a story that we found? A few google searches and a full name / social profile may be enough. It really varies.

  • One thing to add which I know we do a lot -- we pay a lot of attention to the network of people who engage with that account as well, to judge past performance. This article isn't perfectly analagous, but it shows how your network of connections can tell us a lot about you: www.npr.org

  • A good rule of thumb is to be extremely skeptical during breaking news. Storms are a good example. You see the same fake images pop up here and there. One of the important things about building a community in social media is that if something happens, you can trust your followers to be reliable because you've already vetted them.

  • I can't believe those 18 columns on Tweetdeck - more than ever journalists have to be always available and I imagine it's even more the case if you're 'managing a community'. Can you ever switch off or is it a 24-hour job?
    Robin 9/3/2013 4:31:03 PM
    Commenta ()
  • Robin, when and how to switch off is really important. We have to make the active choice to switch off, even in a breaking news situation. For instance, I was on vacation during the Newtown shootings. My expertise could have been very helpful -- but I had to choose NOT to be a resource in that time. The rest of our team did well without me.

    This weekend, since we knew something was likely to happen in re: Syria, we selected our on-call shifts.

    For our own sanity, we have to be able to hand off the work, but it is super hard, and we have to build up capacity in all of our newsrooms to feel comfortable doing so.
    Kate Myers / NPR 9/3/2013 4:32:58 PM

  • But in practice, it is nearly impossible to ever feel like you've finished and turn off from that community management. That's why you have to make the choice to value yourself as well, and do it.
    Kate Myers / NPR 9/3/2013 4:34:25 PM
    Commenta ()
  • One of the 19 columns is news cat gifs, so it's pleasurable work! But I do switch off. I personally try to take it easy during the weekends, mostly, and certainly during vacation. And by off, I mean camping where there's no reception. But I do experience the occasional Fear of Missing Out thing. You just have to realize that you are always going to miss out on something. I'm fine with that.
