‘This is terrorism in the social media age’

Good morning. Here are 10 media stories.

  1. #ISISMediaBlackout

    Many media organizations didn’t show video or stills from the gruesome execution of Jordanian pilot Muath al-Kaseasbeh. «This is terrorism in the social media age: The horror is sped up, the images more barbaric as the militants try to capture the world’s ever fleeting attention.» (Mashable) | New York Daily News published a still of al-Kaseasbeh in flames. BuzzFeed published stills of fire getting closer to the cage he was held in. The New York Times, The Washington Post, The Associated Press and Reuters all showed images before the execution. (The New York Times) | Fox News did show an image of al-Kaseasbeh in flames.

  2. BuzzFeed grew its Latino audience with content that has wide appeal

    BuzzFeed’s focus on attracting a Latino audience is working. Those stories aren’t just reaching the intended target, but a broader audience. «That’s because most of our readers have diverse groups of friends and followers on the social web.» (Nieman Lab)

  3. Here’s how media orgs have used Snapchat so far

    Pictures of the Year International judging is happening now through Feb. 20 at the Donald W. Reynolds Journalism Institute at the Missouri School of Journalism. So far, awards have been given in features and news. You can’t see the names of the winning photographers until the judging ends, but the photos are online.

Trotter points out the lovely symmetry of this latest move. «The pair of Twitter users who exposed his plagiarism, @blippoblappo and @crushingbort, did so only after Johnson pointed out that I.J.
