Social media networks such as FacebookTwitter and Snapchat are now major players in the journalism space.

See this article in the New York Times: “How Facebook is Changing the Way Its Users Consume Journalism” and also “Facebook won’t kill journalism, it might even save it.” See also “With Facebook’s power growing, publishers scramble to connect directly with audiences” and “Facebook is eating the world“.

On Twitter, see “So Twitter has ruined journalism. Really?” and “How Twitter has changed politics — and political journalism“.

On Snapchat, see “Why media companies should take Snapchat seriously” and “Snapchat to hire journalists for 2016 US Presidential race“.

Finally, see Oxford University’s Reuters Institute report on Journalism in the Age of Social Media.
