The value of platforms

Reading professor Cindy Royal’s article about working intelligently on the platforms and having the right skills for journalism students/educators today, I found the importance in understanding about the “platform” that allows people to distribute and share the content. As social media platforms keep change, the old media models disappear, and new ones keep appear (and will continuously do), it is important to know how the information is circulated, distributed, communicated, or flowed in each and every channels – especially as a journalist whose job is to inform or share the information with the audience. As professor Cindy Royal said in her article, the value in engaging with news is the ability to share it, and platforms make this happen.
