Mobile, social, video

“Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Twitter, and Snapchat (srsly) are news mediums — because that’s where the audience is.”

News is a growth business. People have never consumed more news, and there have never been more creative opportunities available to those who cover it.

ed-okeefeNowThis News is built on three bedrock principles: Mobile. Social. Video. We believe the future of news — in 2014 and beyond — is on mobile devices, via powerful social platforms, and through the unique storytelling power of video. Instagram, Facebook, Vine, Twitter, and Snapchat (srsly) are news mediums — because that’s where the audience is. The mobile + social generation doesn’t need to find the news; the news finds them.

That’s the future of news in 2014.

Ed O’Keefe is editor-in-chief of NowThis News.
