Infographic: What’s the State of the Media in 2016?

Last week, we released the State of the Media 2016 Report, which used a survey of over 300 journalists and Cision’s own media experts to provide insights into how to build better relationships with the media and earn more coverage.

The infographic, inspired by the results, shows some of the highlights of the report, including the top trends in journalism, a look at how reporters use social and what skills communicators need to improve.

Update your communication strategy with key findings, including:

  • Social media has become an even greater source for content creation and curation thanks to new social tools for journalists
  • More than half of journalists use social to source stories
  • Two-thirds of journalists rate press releases as one of the most important PR resources

The infographic also includes a timeline of 2015’s major media events that have shaped the industry, including:

  • Buzzfeed, BBC and other outlets beginning to publish through Facebook
  • Periscope launching to join the ranks of Meerkat and Stream
  • The Associated Press forming a “Branded Content” department.
