Seattle News and Social Media

As part of an on-going research study I’ve been monitoring and comparing all sorts of different media sources ranging from public television, stock markets, and local Seattle news.

One of the interesting examples I can share for the local community happens to be the local news scene, an interesting mixture of news and syndication channels that covers multiple television channel partners, dozens of new personalities, hot topics, and both real-world and online syndication channels.

To help connect this with the ‘big picture’ I’m going to work through some of the bullet points I’m researching. This article will open up some “food for thought” and I’ll discuss some of the significance of this type of research and how the process overlaps with other business models.

The three Seattle news stations I chose to include in this review were

The digital cookie jar- ethics, liability, legality meet reputation

One of the things that sets my team apart is our ability to dig up remarkably obscure information and use our insight to connect it to other digital resources. Sometimes these resources connect to obvious online repositories (Google, Twitter, Facebook, Yelp), while at other times it connects to second and third tier data (home sales, political contributions, census data, employee lists.)

The most interesting part of our work is between the connection of digital information and real world information that has often been ignored for months, years or even decades. New strategic and tactical information allows us to redesign business models and locate areas of efficiency, risk and opportunity (sample connection points for digital and real world data include human resources, stock changes, executive communication, employee management, customer care, fulfillment, sales, etc.) Read more
