news ? what is news ? what is consider as news worthiness ?
what i had in my mind when i heard the word news would be something that people would be interested in knowing. Be it topics related to the country, the politics , happening around the surroundings, and now what not news related to celebrities too . what do you actually consider as news ? A piece of article that got onto the newspapers ? something that people around talks about ? gossips related to a celebrity ?
There are 4 news features that is transient, Pseudo-events, narrativasation and visual imperatives . all this features are important that is being included in a piece of news. There are 8 news values which is cultural proximity, relevance, rarity, continuity, elite references, negativity, composition and personalisation. all of this news values existed in news to show their news worthiness.
The irony is what we used to consider as news used to be everything that is written on the traditional media itself which is the newspaper but now news can be gotten from so many social platforms where people start to share pieces of news with friends in family using the social media which is expanding throughout time. At this technological era, everyone seems to be sharing news on twitter and Facebook which is so convenient until the point where every time i refresh my twitter or Facebook i get updates about what is happening in my surrounding and it seems that everyone is neglecting the existence of the newspaper because everything can be get online so easily now.
