Trends in the Living Networks

I was just asked "what is a social media expert"? Marshall McLuhan is still the oracle. Here is one of my favorite quotes from the master. Professionalism merges the individual into patterns of total environment. Amateurism seeks the development of the total awareness of the individual and the critical awareness of the groundrules of society. The amateur can afford to lose. The professional tends to classify and specialise, to accept uncritically the groundrules of the environment.

Twitter's impact on the news and media cycle

Trends in the Living Networks

While online technologies have transformed the media along many dimensions, one of the most important ways of understanding this is in how the news cycle has changed. In the old days news was broken on real-time channels such as radio and TV, reinforced and pushed out to a broader audience through newspapers, discussed again in chat shows, and sometimes had life added to the news with updates or responses. Today, while elements of that cycle remain, much of it has changed.
