Abstract [en]

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.
