More About the Author

Alfred Hermida combines academic rigour with a journalist's sensibility on how to tell a compelling story. An award-winning digital media pioneer at the forefront of research into social media and new forms of storytelling, he is an associate professor at the Graduate School of Journalism, University of British Columbia, Canada. His new book, Tell Everyone: Why We Share and Why It Matters, delves deeply into how social media is reshaping the worlds of media, business and activism. Alfred has a distinguished journalistic pedigree, having honed his craft in telling stories with impact through 16 years at the BBC News, including four years as a correspondent in the Middle East.

Product Description


"The authors do an excellent job situating their study and the concept of participation within the broader body of research and theory on journalism, but also offer useful insights into the practical realities of how journalists are addressing an increasingly active audience in the newsroom today." (Journalism, 23 February 2012)

"Like its authors, half of whom are both journalists and scholars, the book is also a hybrid – on the one hand, it serves as a robust piece of empirical research and, on the other, it is an excellent textbook for journalism students. This is evidently a deliberate device by the authors who wish to make a contribution to knowledge without alienating potential readers. The book is written in clear, familiar English resembling more of a journalistic style than an academic one, and each chapter ends with questions inviting the reader (or lecturer) to discuss and probe issues. There is also an effective glossary which explains terms which may be unfamiliar to those starting out in the field."

Intended primarily as a textbook – each chapter concludes with discussion questions – the volume provides an excellent starting point for examining the implications of new ways of collecting and disseminating what we call news." (Choice, 1 October 2011)



"The discipline of journalism studies is in dire need of approaches that move beyond zombie categories such as online/offline, hard/soft news, professional/citizen journalism. By investigating an emerging set of participatory practices in a truly cross–national context, the authors of this book show both theoretically and practically how the production of news is changing around the world. "
– Mark Deuze, Indiana University; author of "Media Work" and editor of "Managing Media Work".
