International Conference on Online Journalism (Ciberpebi)

Although journalism has always been in continuous transition and change, in recent times it seems to be experiencing a special moment of transformation and uncertainty, similar to what has already been experienced with the emergence of the Web and the online media themselves. Together with constant updating, information abundance and innovation in formats, genres and consumer devices, audience participation today represents one of the main drivers of innovation, both professionally and academically. Technological transition helped to evolve towards this complex scenario, determined by the greater presence of the public in the communicative process, an intervention that even reaches the productive phase of the media.

These possibilities have forced the reconfiguration of the attitude of the media, their role of mediation and their relationship with sources, in view of the need to “listen” in a context in which citizens take the floor and make their voices heard. In this sense, journalists have seen adapt their tasks and abilities, focusing these to the information work also in social media, in addition to working with forms of expression characterized by greater freedom and creativity.

In the line of reflection promoted in previous editions, the International Conference on Online Journalism aims to approach these realities based on multiple expert visions, charged with analyzing, from complementary angles, the nature, quality and usefulness of citizen participation to strengthen the democratic value of mediated information.

Newsnet Seminar


Newsnet Seminar collects the main contributions made by the researchers of the News, Networks and Users in the Hybrid Media System project.

The overall objective of this project is to map out an accurate picture of how news content is being created, distributed, commented upon and shared within the current hybrid media system. To that end, we have defined the following four tasks:

  1. Describe the news strategies online media have adopted at the organisational and content creation level, especially those associated with their relationships with new actors participating in the system and the manner in which they incorporate the content these newcomers generate into the overall content they offer their audiences.
  2. Determine, by means of an analysis of emergent digital public spheres, the ways in which audiences receive, analyse and share news generated by all actors operating within the system and the manner to which social media platforms contribute to a higher level of pluralism.
  3. Examine the journalistic impact of disinformation, one of the main consequences of the hybrid media system, examining the degree of transparency and security applied in professional practices, tools, platforms and policies.
  4. Analyse the social, economic and technological changes that have given rise to the emergence of a hybrid media system in which the number of participating actors has exponentially increased and the roles they play and their relationships with audiences have both been altered – an ecosystem in which a growing number of agents have the tools, capacity and means to generate news content on an equal basis.
