A brand new study from the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism offers media buffs plenty to chew on.
Entitled “How Blogs and Social Media Agendas Relate and Differ from the Traditional Press,” the study “gathered a year of data on the top news stories discussed and linked to on blogs and social media pages and seven months’ worth on Twitter.
“We also have analyzed a year of the most viewed news-related videos on YouTube.”
Pew’s findings may surprise you.
Anybody who uses social media for promotion, or works in/hates legacy media, should read that Pew Research study.
