Nieman Reports;Winter2008, Vol. 62 Issue 4, p13
The article examines how journalists can employ the tools of the Internet and digital communications in their reporting. The example of young people, who are accustomed to communicating via blogs, online social networks, and other Web 2.0 media, offers journalists a glimpse of how they can efficiently employ the same tools. Research indicates that young people are most receptive to news and other information which is "personalized" to reflect their own interests and life situations.
