THE CIPER AND IDLREPORTEROS’ CONTENT STRATEGY: consequences of changing platform from Facebook to Twitter

Jose Luis Requejo Alemán, Jairo Lugo-Ocando

Resumo


ABSTRACT – This work examines why non-profit investigative journalism organizations, CIPER and IDL-Reporteros, switched from Facebook to Twitter as a strategy to reach wider audiences and gain greater influence in society. To undertake this study, we triangulated secondary data analysis together with a content analysis of their social media accounts and conducted in-depth interviews with their managers. Our work has identified a significant transition from Facebook to Twitter, with the latter social networking service giving the two organizations greater visibility and reach than we expected.

Nosso trabalho identificou uma transição significativa do Facebook para o Twitter, com a última rede dando a eles maior visibilidade, alcance e mais do que esperávamos.
