- Facebook is the leading social media site in news. Followed closely by Youtube and Twitter.
- The majority of users spread the news by re posting the video, image or story. However others will talk about it, or post their own video or picture of a news worthy event.
- Most people discover the news by using a social media site, the site will have a link or some information about a topic and from there the user can choose weather or not they wish to learn about it.
- On Facebook the most viewed subjects are entertainment, events in a community, or sports; the least viewed however is business.
- People however still prefer to talk about the news in person rather then over social media.
Things I Like:
The format, its simple, when you log on you see the title then the main story
The easy to see subcategories, if I want to read up on a specific subject I can get to it easily
The search bar, if I want to read a specific article now I don’t have to go looking for it
Things I think they could improve:
There are a lot of adds very close to where I need to click if I want to read an article
If you click on a sub category how small anything is
The only school that gets a specific subcategory is MkNary
