Journalism is increasingly dependent on and influenced by companies that dominate the social web. Facebook, Twitter, and Google are no longer “just platforms” – they are shaping how journalism is practiced and funded.

This symbiosis between two worlds that have historically had different cultures, technologies and business models is creating both tension and opportunity.

The Tow Center for Digital Journalism is an interdisciplinary center based at Columbia Journalism School. We teach best practices to a new generation of journalists and foster a wider understanding of how the public is influenced in the 21st Century.
