New Media Trends

Media practitioners, mass communication professors and students are invited to the forum "New Media, New Journalism: The impact of Web 2.0 and beyond on the News Media" on Wednesday, June 27, from 1-4 pm at the GT-Toyota Asian Center Auditorium, UP Diliman.

Philippine new media practitioners Marites Danguilan-Vitug (Newsbreak, Rappler) and Roby Alampay ( are joined by Spanish new media veterans, Libertad Paloma (Cadena SER, Spain's premier radio network) and Juan José Téllez (Canal Sur, the Public Multi Media Network of the Autonomous Region of Andalucia), in a discussion on the impact of the New Media and Social Media on traditional media. 

Dramatic changes are taking over the media landscape now that the digital media has replaced analogue, not only in the production of content, but in media’s relationship with its audiences as well.

For media practitioners, professors and students of mass communication, there is a timely need to assess where technology is taking the news industry. Are new media platforms, from blogs to twitter and social media, redefining traditional journalism? Is there any interplay between the new media and the conventional media of newspaper, radio and TV in the reporting, delivery, and consumption of the news? Or are their agendas different? How is the Spanish media industry coping with the demands of, and for, new technology amidst national and international economic challenges?

Find the answers in a unique forum sponsored by Kapatiran Sandugo in cooperation with the UP College of Mass Communication, within the framework of the Ventura de los Reyes Project, a collaborative undertaking funded by the Spanish Agency for International Development Cooperation (AECID). 

Admission is FREE, but seats are limited. So, please register early via email and or phone 920-6866 (look for Xeng or Claire), or text (0943) 556-1254.
