10 predictions for news media in 2011

By Vadim Lavrusik at Mashable:

In many ways, 2010 was finally the year of mobile for news media, and especially so if you consider the iPad a mobile device. Many news organizations like The Washington Post and CNN included heavy social media integrations into their apps, opening the devices beyond news consumption.

In 2011, the focus on mobile will continue to grow with the launch of mobile- and iPad-only news products, but the greater focus for news media in 2011 will be on re-imagining its approach to the open social web. The focus will shift from searchable news to social and share-able news, as social media referrals close the gap on search traffic for more news organizations. In the coming year, news media’s focus will be affected by the personalization of news consumption and social media’s influence on journalism.

Check out the great list here. I’m particularly interested in “Leaks and Journalism: A New Kind of Media Entity,” “Location-Based News Consumption” (hyperlocal + micro-reporting?) and “Social Storytelling Becomes Reality.”
