Abstract

As the demands upon technology increase, news outlets are forced to consider innovative ways to capture the attention of audiences. A large proportion of the population admit to accessing news via social media; however, clarification of what qualifies as news has caused some confusion, particularly to post-millennials, and traditional concepts in journalism must be challenged to ensure audiences renew in the upcoming years. This paper explores how post-millennials characterise news and how they ultimately define it. It uses a focus group of post-millennial students, exploring their consumption of news and overall identifying how they define news, enabling the formulation of a new journalistic lexicon.
