While the social field remains a forum providing the ingredients and platform for people to network and even internetwork, the media on the other hand takes its game right into the social field, taking into cognizance its resource of a rich audience.
Various media groups have indulged the viable platform of social networks to effectively propagate information and thereby reaching their target audience in the process. This I consider to be an effective means of information dissemination.
Effective information is therefore information reaching the appropriate target (people) at the right time (when needed and still useful).
As a strong fan of the media, I sit at my niche amongst a vast collection of observers, fans and spectators as if seated within this global stadium. Cheering, yelling, cursing, complimenting and reacting generally to the play: The throws, foals, goals, penalties, corner kicks of news content & presentation of different media teams.
It’s all very exciting that at the end of each day, one would often compare, weigh and analyze the content of the news bits that depicted the skill of play, which seemed more skillful.
One is forced to choose which team is most credible in the art and skill of news content and presentation, the tactics, organization, co-ordination. The strikes (introducing the news, its caption etc.), dribbles (the content, terminologies and arrangement of the news), and goals (the information passed as mission achieved of the news).
I would love to say here that several social networks have formed the field of play, but as you know, not all fields favour the teams but all fields are fit for play. Facebook has been a very viable social field because of the growing audience.
As a social buddy, I connect to various social platforms but asides from people networking, I news-network. That’s why News24 Nigeria is a team I relish to see display their art and skill of news presentation on my Facebook news feed.
There are no dull moments on my page, because every time I scroll, 24hrs a day and 7 days a week, I’ve got information on my page from News24 Nigeria at my fingertips.
You should try this, search the media team by its name on your page, hit the “like” button and you are on, sit back, relax and enjoy!
