In a fast-paced world. In the peak of globalization. In between the never-ending expansion of the 4th industrial revolution; imagine a work field that allows you the possibility of having firsthand experience in real life events as they happen and then providing you with a platform to tell the rest of the world about it. Anyone, who is willing to be your audience for at least a couple of minutes. Digital Journalism or “online journalism” is a modern way of sharing curated information through the Internet and social media platforms. Once the investigative work is done, journalists nowadays need to ensure that their content is striking enough that it will be worth over the average 1 minute and 30 seconds that internet users dedicate to online reading to validate the time they invested before posting their work. Just 20 years ago, Journalism used to be that activity which allowed people’s voices to be heard. Its sources? Newspaper, radio, magazines, and television. The boom of Industry 4.0 and the decrease for barriers in content sharing and consumption brought with it the biggest change that Journalism has experienced to date: adapt and overcome.
