Internet has changing many majors. One of them is a journalist major. Why? Because people need to understand how to use social media tolls and strategies for living. They can use social media in a traditional jobs like working in a newspaper, communication department, schools, etc just as a marketing tools, but it is a new instrument for work to connect people with the world.
Also,we need to think that, when we understand social media tools, we will see that new jobs related with internet has been created. To have a journalist involved is in my opinion necessary and fundamental to promote credibility online.
So many people has been losing their “traditional” jobs (in a officer or newspaper etc) because of the Internet and economy crisis and for those people who can catch up social media tools and strategies, i would say a “new” door is being opened. New opportunities will appear and also people can create their own business online with very less budget. Isn’t to expensive to pay a dominium online. I believe that for those people who are losing their jobs, to learn how to use social media can be a very good differential because they can even be their own boss.
I also do believe that so many things still will change a lot! Let’s be prepared.
