Take a fascinating look at the new information context, via the declining use of newsprint and the fortunes of its distributors. The Nieman Journalism Lab presents a retrospective on newsprint as it tracks "the newspaper industry's progression from mass to niche, as Google and Facebook have become that new mass, first in time spent and increasingly in digital advertising." Focused (or at least fingering) increasingly on digital, but still liking, and missing, paper - that's the nature of today's mass information audience, says the Nieman post.
And, via the Knight Foundation, enjoy this new digital book on the transformation in journalism, "Searchlights and Sunglasses," by Eric Newton.
Finally, again from Nieman, but originating with Pew Research, read how "YouTube is bigger than Twitter for news."
