Infographic: The Role of Mobile Devices, Social Media in News Consumption

    This year's State of the News Media report shows we are increasingly relying on mobile devices to get our news and information.

    Editor’s note: This week, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism released its annual State of the News Media report. The following is an infographic the organization put together to spell out some of the report’s biggest findings and it is used here as a guest post.

    In early 2012, the digital revolution entered a new era. The age of mobile, in which people are connected to the web wherever they are, arrived in earnest.

    Each year, the Pew Research Center’s Project for Excellence in Journalism analyzes the major sectors of the news industry in depth and look across those different elements of the news media to see broader trends that cannot be identified by the traditional method of looking one sector at a time. To produce the report, the organization combines data others have generated with its own reporting, and with its own data and original analysis. The goal each year is to provide for citizens, journalists, researchers and scholars a singular resource about American journalism — the record of our civic and cultural life.
