News Consumption
Aug 29th, 2017, 8:51am
How? When? Where? How?

This latest report from

"The Reuters Institute and The University Of Oxford"

delves deeply into the way 'News' is 'consumed' throughout the world.

It looks into the percieved changes in the way 'News' is accessed, how often and through which system, whether it be mobile, or desktop, or Broadcast.

The use of voice-activated news assistants, news aggregators, Whatsap and Facebook is constantly changing, and the report illustrates how different countries have different preferences when it comes to trusting their news media.

The BBC is refered to several times towards the end.

(The web-site is an overview of the full report and includes the key findings).

The full report may be downloaded (in pdf form) here.

The UK section starts at page 54.

"Making all this possible, we are hugely grateful to our sponsors: Google, the BBC, Ofcom, the Broadcasting Authority of Ireland (BAI), the Media Industry Research Foundation of Finland, the Fritt Ord Foundation in Norway, the Korea Press Foundation, Edelman UK, as well as our academic sponsors at the Hans Bredow Institute, the University of Navarra, the University of Canberra, the Centre d’études sur les médias, Université Laval, Canada and Roskilde University in Denmark.

We are also grateful to YouGov, our polling company, who did everything possible to accommodate our increasingly complex requirements and helped our research team analyse and contextualise the data."

The Reuters Institute and University of Oxford also produced this short report which "explores how online news content was discovered (and consumed) by computer users in the UK between mid-March and mid-April 2017."

In brief, the report found that three brands (BBC, Guardian and Mail On Line), together accounted for 63% of stores read, and 64% of the time spent- from the sample taken of news sites during the sample month.
