How young adults define ‘news’: 7 good questions with Data & Society’s Mary Madden

Mary Madden

D&S researcher Mary Madden was interviewed by the American Press Institute about Madden’s recent Knight Foundation-supported report, “How Youth Navigate the News Landscape.”

However, one of my favorite quotes was from a participant who described a future where news would be delivered by hologram: “I think like it’s going to be little holograms. You’re going to open this thing and a little guy’s going to come out and tell you about stuff.”

Given that some participants said they already found notifications annoying, I’m not sure how successful the little hologram guy would be, but it was clear that the participants fully expected that the news industry would continue to evolve and innovate in creative ways moving forward.
