Journalists' Working Status and News Gathering Habits in Asia Pacific

The proliferation of digital and social media is rapidly changing the landscape of newsrooms – the 24/7 news cycle turnaround has become swifter and news gets published first online before appearing in print the next day. Social media has become a powerful tool in helping journalists monitor and gather breaking news, spread vital information using various avenues including live streaming apps and hashtags, as well as engage with their audiences.
