Use of Videosharing Sites Surges

Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project study shows that as the audience for online video continues to grow, a leading edge of internet users are migrating their viewing from their computer screens to their TV screens. At the same time, more cell phone users are opting for the convenience of watching video on smaller screens via their handheld devices. One in three internet users watch television shows or movies online; 23% of these viewers have watched online video on their TV.

Pew Research Center’s Internet & American Life Project study shows that 62% of adult internet users have watched video on sites such as YouTube. That’s a jump of 33% since December 2006. See the full report for details.

Check out Knight Digital Media Centerís new look!

The Knight Digital Media Center’s website has been given a facelift that we believe makes it easier for our users to find what they need - from training opportunities to blogs exploring the future of news and online journalism to the latest tweets from some thoughtful folks.

The redesign reflects the feedback we’ve gotten from loyal and new users trying to access both our timely blogs - News Leadership 3.0 and OJR-The Online Journalism Review - as well as our deep archives of past seminars.

The KDMC - a partnership between USC Annenberg School for Communication and the University of California Berkeley Graduate School of Journalism - is continually trying to find new ways to help journalist grow and thrive in the digital news ecology that is evolving.  This redesigned website makes sure you get the information you need quickly.  Plus we’ve added:

  • A Digital News Blog, highlighting links to stories, blogs, research we think digital journalists need to know.
  • Links to KDMC Digital Partners, providing users with quick access to other Knight-funded programs focused on digital transformation.
  • Twitter Roll Call, a changing lineup of Twitter feeds from some of journalism innovation’s best thinkers.

In coming months you’ll find more opportunities for multimedia and technology training at the UC Berkeley and new offerings for news entrepreneurship, leadership and online journalism strategies at USC Annenberg.  Please tell us what you think at .(JavaScript must be enabled to view this email address).  And don’t forget to sign up for our weekly e-newsletter to ensure you are notified about new seminars and other news.
