Social News Smarts
Community & User Expectations on Social News Sites
News aggregators, portals and search engine front pages are now the leading source of traffic to the websites of the Mainstream News Media.* Social News Aggregator sites offer visitors more than a chance to consume news, they also offer an opportunity to participate, weigh in on, contribute to and interact around the stories of the day.
As opportunities to participate become more and more common, will news consumers come to expect, or even demand, participation? How are online community expectations changing when it comes to news? What distinguishes a “social news participant” from a “citizen journalist?” What can traditional news sites learn from social news aggregators?
Join the San Francisco Social Media Club for an evening of lively and entertaining conversation about the evolution and growing influence of social news sites.
