Some thoughts on the fast-changing news media landscape from Mashable:

In 2011, the focus on mobile will continue to grow with the launch of mobile- and iPad-only news products, but the greater focus for news media in 2011 will be on re-imagining its approach to the open social web. The focus will shift from searchable news to social and share-able news, as social media referrals close the gap on search traffic for more news organizations. In the coming year, news media’s focus will be affected by the personalization of news consumption andsocial media’s influence on journalism.

    I think that many of the news media that are really fighting the mash-up ideas and the demand of internet visitors to follow the news that they are interested in, is not necessarily an opening for just any crazy false statement to be taken as true. There is a danger of that, but the same technology that gives false info a voice, also passes truth on just as fast. The mashables is the technology of “now” and will only move ideas forward.
