Summary transcript for 9 Aug 2012 #AWCchat: is print dead?

Thanks to everyone who participated in our 28th #AWCChat on Twitter, about whether print communication is still relevant today.

We had great turnout and our guest host @MaryAnneComm (a former print magazine editor) was terrific!

Four items were up for discussion:

1)   Where do you get news/information/inspiration/industry info? Which print pubs still work for you, & why?

2)  Is the decline of print such a big deal? Should we care about which is hit worse, newspapers or magazines?

3)   What about ‘Twittification’ or ‘textification’ of journalism & communications in general? Are feature articles dead?

4)  Should content format matter? Are multiple platforms (print, online, video, socmed) the answer or is that too costly?

**  On Chirpstory – the summary transcript for 9 August chat on whether “print is dead.”

The next chat is on Thursday, 16 August, but the topic is still TBD, either video-related or about crisis comms.

**  Chat schedule and topics for August 2012

Thanks for your support of the AWC (Association for Women in Communications) community.
