Social media and online journalism are increasingly becoming the preferred means through which people receive their news each day. It turns out that the Internet has not only changed the way that people receive the news, it has also contributed to people spending more time reading the news from a wider variety of sources. More and more people are buying laptops, smartphones and tablets nowadays, and news readers generally get their news from more than one of these devices. All this makes it abundantly clear that online journalism is in the process of a rapid expansion that is revolutionizing the industry.
Journalists must grow and evolve with their changing industry. That is why an internship in online journalism is so valuable for young journalists today.
