The Social Media Revolution: Exploring the Impact on Journalism and News Media Organizations - Inquiries Journal. Many pundits and authors are predicting the death of mass media; or, at least, the reduction of it to just another source of news that fewer and fewer of our Internet connected world will follow. In an inverse way, just as all politics are local, so is social media. Politics tend to first revolve around local issues, and each of us is most concerned with what we see around us; do we have a job, is our family safe, and so forth. Social media has made each of us into media sources, and we are able to share our views with the world by being localized. The young, especially, do what they know; and, what they know is what they grew up with, computers, the Internet, social media, and the ability to state their views on any issue, and share them immediately with others. I choose to believe that most of them; at least the technologically savvy of them, are not "snowflakes" who need "safe spaces" to expound. They are intelligent, opinionated, and have the ability to create new and interesting ways of interacting with their world. Exhibit A is the Florida Bar Social Media initiative, which is bringing Bar news to more and more of the legal profession. I may be old in age; but, I share their enthusiasm for this "new media", and I believe that it is the future of human sharing of news and information. Twitter on.
