The way in which we find our news is constantly changing. There is no one set way to discover the latest breaking news.
With the election of Donald Trump in 2016, ‘Fake News’ has somehow made its way to the forefront of what a lot of us now take as ‘news’. A growing reliance on social media has also greatly assisted in this change.
But what does this mean for the news as we know it?
It means that we now live in a world where anyone can share anything at any time to an open audience and have it classifies as an audience. Snapchat is the most likely social media platform (aside from Facebook, which will always be somewhat used as a news platform) to be used for such a purpose. This is because Snapchat is instantaneous; you can take a photo of an event and immediately share it with one person, all your friends or the world.
Whether this form of ‘news’ should be considered fake, well that will no doubt be determined in the near future, but for now, Snapchat stands as a ‘reliable’ news source.
