Vadim Lavrusik (see readings) writes that news consumption is shifting to the personalized social news stream. In other words, individuals are now relying on news broadcasts from social networks instead of utilizing traditional media and news sites. He notes that even people who actively look for news expect it to be personalized to their tastes and interests. Do you agree with his observations? Is the new personalized social news stream trend an effective way of news consumption?
