In the 21st century backpack journalism is still a thing. People still take time to do their stories. The longer they take on a story the better it can be. The backpack journalism stories are mainly used in newspapers and broadcast news like ABC news. It has changed though. Backpack journalism is no longer just for documentary photojournalism. It has grown to be used in all different forms of news distribution. Backpack journalism stories are more effective because the journalist has more experience on the subject because they can take longer to understand the material better. Examples of this would be journalists traveling to sites of war and sporting events. This kind of news can vary from political news on ABC news all the way to sports news on ESPN. Backpack journalism no longer is just about breaking news, but it has improved since it started. It first involved in the 1990s and has become better and better up. It is still improving today.

Blog Post #5

Just to recap the museums I chose to follow were National Archives, National Museum of American History and National Air and Space Museum. The social media for the National Archives has remained pretty consistent about posting roughly 5 to 10 times a day over the past month. They’re promoting all sorts of things not just stuff for the museum. The National Museum of American History is also pretty consistent about posting. They post about the same as the National Archives does. They are posting stuff mainly about exhibits that are going on in their museum. The National Air and Space Museum post too but they don’t post as much. They post roughly a couple times every few days. They are posting about what is going on in the museum. I feel that these three museums have stayed basically where they were about a month ago. They do a pretty good job at spreading the word about their museums on social media.

I chose to do my fourth blog post on the U.S. presence in Afghanistan/Iraq/Middle East. I did a little bit of research on it. It is a couple different social media sites. It is on Facebook and Twitter. It is not on Snapchat though. I am not really even sure how they would even put that kind of news on there. Facebook and Twitter, both do a really good job on post information on U.S. presence in Afghanistan/Iraq/Middle East. The posts they do are basically news articles on their sites.

I think that if I could only follow 5 people on Twitter, they would be Ted Turner, Travel, Washington Xing, Car Universe, and President Obama. These people are a combination of personal and professional. I would follow Ted Turner because that is my uncle and he posts thing in both fields (professional and personal). I would follow Travel because they show some of the most beautiful places in the world. I would follow Washington Xing because I interned there this summer and they post things on the park. I would follow Car Universe because they post about some of the coolest looking cars. I would follow President Obama because it helps to keep current on politics. If I could have 7 the other two would be Emily Bett Rickards and Kaley Cuoco. I would follow Emily Bett Rickards because she posts some pretty entertaining stuff and also she posts promotional things for organization and fundraisers. I would follow Kaley Cuoco because she is funny and posts fun pictures.

Three companies that relate to the job I would like when I graduate are the National Archives, National Museum of American History and National Air and Space Museum. The National Archive is very active on their social media. They post a couple of times a day. The National Museum of American History is also very active on social media. They also post a couple of times a day. The National Air and Space Museum is active on social media. They are not as active as the other two companies.

The Line Blurs Between Web Series and TV Shows

I disagree with the article. I think that as time goes on cable television will still be a big component in the world of shows. Web Series may be becoming more and more popular. Not everything stays popular forever. Just because it is growing more popular as time goes on does not mean that it will stay that way. Shows that are on television allow you to watch the series an episode a week opposed to waiting for the Web Series to release an entire season at a time. Not all shows will be Web Series, so that means people will always want to have cable television. People can’t see into the future to know what shows they will always want to watch. That means they will want to have cable television. Web Series either make it to cable television or fail to stay on the web. Very few Web Series make it to cable television. Sometimes, shows are created as Web Series and gain traction and become popular enough to become a cable television show. Some other times they are meant to stay on as Web Series. Sometimes it can go the other way. A cable television show might not be picked back up so a Web Series could pick it up to continue the show. (H. (2014)) Shooting a Web Series is as if you are shooting an Indie Film on a very small budget. If the series has a very small budget that means that the show will not have the ability to make a great show. Nowadays shows need to have a bigger budget. The bigger the budget the more people will tune into watch the show. (H. (2015)) Even with production values going up that means the rest of the series is less quality because their budget will go down. Just because people spent a lot of time on the internet, that does not mean more people will watch the Web Series. Web Series and cable television have at least one thing in common. People will watch a show if they like the promotional video for the show. Word-of-mouth works for both Web Series and cable television. People think that if it is a Web Series, it can have more raunchy content. They are wrong. Cable television is becoming just as raunchy as a Web Series can be. (Armstrong, O. (2014)) Some people are set in their ways and not open to different ways, even if it could save them money. People that like cable television get more of a range of variety for what they pay for. They can even use OnDemand and watch things that might even be considered a Web Series. They have a little bit of both of the worlds. They have cable television and Web Series in one deal. The way people look at Web Series is wrong. People should stay open minded. Just because something is new, that does not always mean that it is going to be better than the old way.
