Digital Journalism World 2013 (7 - 8 October 2013 | M Hotel Singapore)

Social media and social story telling enrich Journalism and changed it forever. The fact is social media has been on rise as the source for breaking news today (The Oriella Digital Journalism Study, 2013).

The coverage of Boston Bombing is only one of the many reporting that showed the power, style and impact of social media in reaching millions in split seconds, accurately or otherwise…

This central issue remains – how do you handle this power and how do you best manage it? As organizations move away rapidly from traditional print into digital platforms and with the rise of social story-telling, how can journalists & newsrooms today keep up? How can social media be integrated with traditional platforms for maximum results? We are pleased to present these issues in addition to many others on big data, digital ethics, news consumption today, mobile journalism and live blogging.
