Social Media vs. Legacy Media in the New Multi-Gated Media Landscape

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Recent dramatic, far-reaching, and viral news events, including the Syrian crisis, Ferguson, ISIS, the Olympic games, or the ALS campaign, had gatekeepers – from journalists to strategic communicators – look for alternative ways to inform their audiences and influence the public agenda. This panel aims to explore the opportunities and challenges presented by the new multi-gated media landscape, to identify the most influential gatekeepers, and to ascertain the reach and effects of this emerging flow of information.
