Traditional media channels are dissolving, moving us into a “post-channel” media world. Interfaces are at the center, surrounded by eight domains where value now resides in news. Understanding these domains helps us to design - and create - the successful news organizations of tomorrow.
At the center of this universe are the interfaces we use to access media, including not just established interfaces such as TV, paper, and computers, but now smartphones and tablets and soon new interfaces such as digital paper, and wearables.
Timeliness is becoming ever-more important in a world ravenous for immediacy. This often requires accessing the social media created and shared by those on the scene, and rapidly assessing validity before distribution.
Novelty, being first with newsworthy stories, is critical, through investigative reporting and in identifying original perspectives. Today this often involves data analysis and harnessing news and insights provided by crowds.
Insight is where some of the greatest value lies, particularly in business and political journalism, through adding context and analysis to news, and synthesising different perspectives.
Design is driving how we consume information today. People expect outstanding aesthetics and ease of use, visualization is becoming central to communicating news effectively, and the tangibility of print and some new technologies remains valuable to users.
The Reputation of outlets and journalists becomes even more important as information production explodes, giving credence to rapid and transparent validation of news.
Community will shift to the center of media revenue models by coalescing the common identity of a group, enabling them to curate content and share opinions, while the critical power of media brand sits at the intersection of reputation and community.
Filtering has traditionally been done by editors, however social curation is rapidly rising and many look to aggregators across media properties to find the news and content they want.
Relevance drives value, with personalization and localization providing useful filters, while serendipity is important in avoiding a constrained view. Relevant and timely news is actionable, the greatest source of value.
