The Influence of Social Media on Journalism: Sree Sreenivasan of Columbia [Wamda TV]
Wamda contributor Gulay Ozkan, an instructor at Bilgi MBA and Bogazici Universities, sits down with Sree Sreenivasan, professor at the Columbia Journalism School, to chat about the influence of social media on digital journalism today.
"Social media is one of the biggest things to affect journalism since the rise of the internet itself," says Sreenivasan, who explains why social media is useful, and how to use it effectively, and why creating helpful, unique, timely content is essential. He also explains why journalism in the future will be more digital, more specialized, and more social, and predicts the biggest trends to hit social media startups in the next year.
Gulay Ozkan has more than 12 years of experience in the entrepreneurial ecosystem in Turkey. She was one of the key figures behind Turkey’s first technology incubation center, launched by Ericsson in 2000, where she worked with leading telecoms operators from China to South America. In 2007, Gulay founded GEDS Business, a tech startup and innovation consultancy company focused on Europe and the Middle East. She is also the founding president of a Turkish project-management NGO called PMI TR, and she holds a BSc and an MSc in electrical engineering from ITU in Turkey and UNL-Lincoln in the U.S. She can be found on her website or on Twitter at @GulayOzkan.
