Nyheter på 10 sekunder: En socialsemiotisk analys av CNNs stories på Snapchat
Independent thesis Basic level (degree of Bachelor), 10 credits / 15 HE creditsStudent thesis
Journalism as we know it today is facing massive change. Technological advances have enabled new ways of delivering news which differ from traditional means in both practical and content-related matters. This bachelors thesis intended to obtain greater understanding of how journalistic content manifested itself on the new media platform Snapchat. We chose to conduct a socialsemiotic analysis of six of CNNs “stories” on the platform and their corresponding content on CNNs website. By doing this we could distinguish a signifigant change in both magnitude and form. Compared to the corresponding content the stories contained less information and indicated a higher level of sensation and dramatics. In addition we found that information not conveyed in the stories text could appear in other modalities such as image or music. This suggests a different way of storytelling in news media when distributed on this new platform.
