Here’s my slideshow on networked journalism that I’ll be presenting today at the University of Sharjah. I added to my earlier Al Jazeera analysis by examining how Middle East newspapers are practicing networked journalism. A research assistant and I examined about two dozen English and Arabic websites, Twitter feeds and Facebook pages. So, how much is networked journalism being practiced in the MENA region? Not much at all.
I’ll be presenting this research officially at the 9th International Conference on Communication and Mass Media in Athens in mid-May.
