In the 21st century, the ways journalism was produced, accessed, and understood shifted almost entirely from analogue to digital media. With rapidly developing technologies enabling new ways of communicating online, digital journalism emerged as a distinct type of journalism, reflected in changes to the ways news is presented to audiences, how both journalists and audiences engage with new interconnected opportunities, and how scholars conceive of journalism in this era. At the center of these shifts were changes in the relationship between the field of journalism, its practices, and its audiences. This chapter highlights changes that accompanied the emergence of digital journalism, and specific challenges as journalism adapted to online technologies. Key moments include traditional news media confronting the early web, the emergence of blogs and new approaches to journalism which sprung up online, the rise of user-generated content and interactivity, and the social web.
