A study by the Associated Press and Media Research Center found that the largest audiences for digital news content tend to come from those who use social media to share their content.
But for traditional news outlets, they are also popular with younger audiences who want to get the latest and greatest news.
The AP/MRC study found that while younger audiences for traditional media were more likely to use social networking, they were also more likely than older audiences to also watch YouTube.
They were more than twice as likely as those over 65 to say they used Facebook, Twitter or Instagram to share news.
Older audiences also tended to watch more TV than younger audiences, with the AP/TRC finding that those over 55 were more interested in TV than their peers in younger audiences.
For digital news, the AP found that older audiences were more engaged with the social network and more likely “to share content directly” with their followers, while younger viewers were more inclined to share videos and videos directly with their friends.
A similar pattern emerged for the most popular topics in newsrooms: older audiences watched more TV, while digital newsrooms were more concerned about what content is getting shared.
“In traditional newsrooms, people are more engaged than they are in the digital world,” said Emily Bittner, senior news editor for the AP and APMRA.
“We want them to get their news from places where they can have a voice.”
A majority of journalists surveyed said they were happy with the news environment they found online.
“I think we’re in the early stages of a transition, where a lot of the newsroom news is being pulled from traditional channels,” said Meredith Rafferty, senior director of digital news for The Associated Press.
She said that many of the outlets in her department, including The Washington Post, had begun using platforms like Twitter to help their newsroom staff, but also to offer content that is less partisan.
The survey also found that traditional news sites were increasingly relying on technology to deliver content.
According to the AP, most outlets rely on technology like search and social to find stories, but more than half of outlets surveyed said that they are using artificial intelligence, automated tools, or robots to deliver news.
More than half said they use a combination of technology, artificial intelligence and robots to find news.
But the AP also found a trend of digital content creators making money from their work.
“It’s really a business model of what we’ve seen over the last few years,” said David Karp, director of the Media and Communications Studies program at the University of Texas at Austin.
“A lot of these digital platforms are built to make money.”
The AP and the APMRC found that most newsrooms are doing a good job of diversifying their content, but there is room for improvement.
“The media landscape is changing.
People are using their platforms and making money on it,” Raffer, of the AP said.
“But that doesn’t mean the newsrooms that we’re covering should be going in that direction.”
