Novel story format for messages
This 800-word story is still the dominating online message for most publishing houses. It seems to be largely a heritage of print newspaper, and to a smaller degree this also applies to online newscast videos, much of which are still made using conventional TV-broadcasts.
In 2017, the communications sector has recognized issues in gaining and keeping viewers. There' s rivalry from all the other mindsets on the web, the challenges of maintaining businesses and the need to deal with the growing disaggregations of messages through technical platform. A possible answer to this is the development of new message-oriented message format.
Styles that are better suited to the customs and connections of humans and technologies or better suited to "user needs" (but what does the consumer need for something new? This is quite a bunny house). The development and distribution of useful and appealing new forms could increase the recognition value of messages when aggregate and consume on other plattforms and give more convincing grounds for visiting the sources and applications.
To start a BBC R&D research program to investigate alternative approaches to these traditional media I gave an overview of the terrain of electronic messaging and looked for innovation in online product and videoformats. I was looking primarily for story styles that are used for messages that are not the legacy of printing or broadcasting, that try to take advantage of the possibilities of the electronic, that were specially developed for messages and that are reusable across histories and categories.
I know what I found in each of these catagories, plus a few unsuitable samples and some newsgroups. As online message videoclips become ever smaller and larger, they are designed for inclusion on community forums, telephones and tablet devices. That kind of videotape has also developed beyond the conventional reporter-led TV newscast, fuelled by the spread of eye-witnesses firing on cell mobiles and notables.
The most efficient way to watch videos is if it's a graphic story that actually shows what's going on. It is designed to be used in societal feeding and in environments where audio is not appropriate or available. They sometimes don't use original videos at all, but use still images instead to make a slide show, perhaps with some Ken Burns trick.
If you follow a recent styling trends of a few years ago to use telephone size information, each display contains pictures, large text or videos that you can browse through by crossing out the pages. As a result, Snapchat has made several map-based message types the primary focus of Snapchat Storys and its *Stories-cloning. The first meeting I can recall with this style is "A Tap Essay".
Now there are several specialized utilities and toolskits for this file size. It is a very labor-intensive production method and needs a certain kind of history to work well. Recently, the NYT Fine Line range has been similarly visually and scrolling, but with more confidence in film. Approximately the originally organized message ?built - 2015 was made of reusable blocs or "atoms", with which tales were presented as an update, facts and quotations.
Related ideas continue to exist in reusable fact packs and explanations in Vox and the Guardian and the BBC's Atomised Newsletter-experts. However, they do not yet consist of correctly organised information. Read @StructStories and Jeff Jarvis' article on article deconsolidation for more on this way of think. Initially taken up by the technical media for reporting on conferences, then for sport, and now often considered important enough for reporting on other occasions.
Meanwhile, there' s real life webcasting available on Snapchat and Facebook. Apparently the web has not invented any list, but it seems to have clung to it as a succesful form. At the moment, it seems that small briefs are a favourite form. Though not particularly digitally, they were designed for those trying to keep up with the congestion of the messages and may have been affected by the e-mail newsletters trends.
But I appreciate that the emphasis on what is going on in the information industries does not always promote the historic outlook. The quartz chat bot application, although no chat bot (in the form of a computer that simulates conversations) consists of messages that have been created by reporters in the sound and feel of a message application, is something I like.
The message organization's other communication channel (or "bots") are mainly telephone logs that allow you to select the desired story and then associate it with it. NYT Politics Bot used script talks to tell the story of the reporter, although I would say that there are still no bot that allow you to talk about the newscast.
I' m still awaiting a good choice - your own story about a newscast. While I like this multi-media piece about NYT honeybees and this play about syric refugee looks hopeful, I guess the nearer you get to the video clip, the further you get from a reusable, effective video clipboard.
Personalization is almost always used to screen the selection of histories you have, but what if it is customized the story itself? I mean the visualization path of the journalistic approach to information, not the path "finding histories in records". It ranges from the simple insertion of graphics into an article to the extremely inter-active visualization of information.
I like the Explorable Explanations by Bret Victor and Nicky Case in particular, which include steerable, playful simulation in items, but I have not seen that they are widely used in the headlines. This Reuters review by my BBC mate Zillah Watson for everything you need to know about VR in the newscast.
Although futureurist Amy Webb says VR is a big shot for breaking newscasts and AR is the thing. I have not seen the audio-centric breakthroughs in this mailing because I have not yet found any significant changes in audiovisual message format that go beyond the new ways of delivering it. There are some upcoming surface experimentation and new things to come.
Tweeters and its threading is a kind of message form. Although Facebook is a very Snapchat Stories in the game. Opsum is an experimental message in a short Q&A file formats. It is a really different kind of NYT report. The Bloomberg and Postlight Chrome Extension analyzes and presents related information and messages.
Primer Stories uses a somewhat scrolling but rather concise illustration rather than photo-formatting. Initially RSS, this now also included Facebook Instant Article, Google AMP and Apple Newspaper. In The Feed, your newscasts just shimmer by. It is particularly important that more and more information is received through these media and that listeners are conversant with their formats and UX.
Different "read mode" platform and applications (including reader applications such as Instapaper & Pocket or different browsing reader modes) remove the ever more complicated and loud ly growing browsing, advertising and crusting of items. More and more, they are being used and are probably a purely numerical form, or perhaps it is only humans who choose the old form of unaltered text.
They are often described breathless as AI-written histories (although I am skeptical about how much AI/ML actually exists and how much only artwork is numbered). arrative science seems to be the big force when it comes to transforming text into text. Wibbitz creates automaticly a movie from any textcontents. It seems to me that there are not many new forms here that have been specifically developed to provide online messages on a scaleable base, and this supports the idea behind the idea behind the proposal when it was first made.
Often, the communications industries take and reuse format that have been created elsewhere in the technological sector or produce unique, costly innovation that is not repeatable. However, there are some interesting things that the communications industries themselves have developed: Snowy scrolltelling, visualization of information and the various efforts to structure messages.
The 800-word essay may be the optimal message delivery method, but there seems to be room for research and development, and that is what our research will try to do. Items with a texture that creates re-usable atom? Items that adjust to a user's equipment, context or preference, change in form, sound or medium?
Items that you lead through yourself? At the moment we are looking for ways to complement and flexibly mix text, pictures and videos and think about how to personalize messages. Please use Twitter if you know other interesting message format.
I' ve got an on-going compilation of these sample sizes and more about this Tumblr. Have a look at Kevin Anderson's Reuters Beyond the Articles, which contains seven case histories of new item types. The Jeff Jarvis novel on message future contains a section on file types. "Paul Bradshaw's The Rise of the Horizontally Story" discusses the nature of the horizontally narrative.
Thank you for chatting with Kevin Anderson, Jacqui Maher, David Cohn, Nic Newman, Matt Locke & Paul Bradshaw and my BBC News and R&D team.
