About How the niche will inherit the Earth or… Is there life after Facebook?

Inaugural Lecture :
Professor Allan Rennie, Honorary Professor of Journalism and Media Studies at the University of Stirling

We are in the middle of a digital revolution. Trust in ‘old guard gatekeepers’ – government, newspaper and broadcasters – has been eroded; journalists have become the targets of vigilantes whipped up by populist politicians; ‘fake news’ has become Donald Trump’s war cry as he faces down criticism of his presidency.

But it’s not just established media that are under attack.

Scandals have seen Facebook and Google’s reputation shredded. They are under fire over misused data, for promoting hate speech online, and targeting users with negative and misleading advertising. “Meet the new boss, same as the old boss,” Pete Townshend wrote.

What is the future for journalism as the disruptors find themselves disrupted?

Biography:
Former national newspaper editor and digital launch veteran Allan Rennie takes us on a journey from a baker’s shop in a Stirling mining town to 1 Hacker Way, Ca. via the UK’s biggest news brands.

And he offers some answers to the big question: Is there life after Facebook?
