Jersey City, NJ (PRWEB) August 19, 2013
The news has changed the last few years as more people use the internet to get their information. Jonathan Goodman, professor of The School of Internet Marketing and President of Halyard Consulting discussed where the future of news lies and how the purchase of the Washington Post by Amazon's Jeff Bezos plays into this.
Goodman sees this purchase by Bezos as just the first of many. In fact, he speculated about what would happen if Facebook purchased the New York Times or Twitter bought the LA Times. He put forth the idea that integrating the news into social media would change the industry. Goodman also pondered the idea that Bezos may turn the Post into an online news source similar to the Huffington Post that pulls in other news reports rather than reporting anything new on its own. It might integrate RSS feeds and consider that the news.
"The old mindset of news as paper has to go away." – Jonathan Goodman
Goodman sees the future of news moving away from print because more people would rather have it online than to not have it all. Because there is more interaction online, it draws people in. There is also less need for specific on-site coverage with technology such as email and Skype that allows journalists to get the information from where they are located. Goodman's final thought was on which newspaper would be next and which billionaire would make the purchase.
