Contents:
Introduction: young people and the future of news -- Young people, journalism, and politics -- Connective journalism -- Hope and disillusionment with legacy news -- Young people "produsing" and consuming news -- Connective journalism and the formation of youthful publics and counterpublics: inserting oneself into the story through witnessing and sharing outrage -- Youth citizen journalism: the connective journalism practices of participation and making the story -- Moving forward: what we can do.
Summary: Young People and the Future of News traces the practices that are evolving as young people come to see news increasingly as something shared via social networks and social media rather than produced and circulated solely by professional news organizations. The book introduces the concept of connective journalism, clarifying the role of creating and sharing stories online as a key precursor to collective and connective political action. At the center of the story are high school students from low-income minority and immigrant communities who often feel underserved or misrepresented by mainstream media but express a strong interest in politics and their communities. Drawing on in-depth field work in three major urban areas over the course of ten years, Young People and the Future of News sheds light on how young people share news that they think others should know about, express solidarity, and bring into being new publics and counter-publics.
