Talking Trends: How Trending Content Drives The News Agenda
1 day ago
When we talk about the verification of online content, we sometimes tend to focus on hard news only. But verification can, and should, be applied to anything that is being reported, no matter how throwaway it may seem.
Whether it's a water bottle flip at a high school talent show, or a bunch of British tourists claiming they got a party boat to Syria, the same journalistic standards should apply to the lighter content on the web.
Storyful has a dedicated team dealing daily with the stories, memes, and content trending online. This week on the Storyful podcast we talk to them about the content that floods social media timelines every day. How are these trends picked up, and how difficult is it to get the real story behind a viral tweet, Reddit thread or Facebook post?
In this episode, our presenter Della Kilroy is joined by Kevin Donnellan, Trends Editor, JJ Worrall, Trends Duty Editor, Aoife Lawlor, Trends Journalist, and Jade Odette O'Leary, Trends Journalist Intern.
