The digital media industry was the only one to survive the lockdowns, and it not only survived but flourished rapidly in the 18 months since the first one was declared.
Digital media now has the most readers and watchers connected to numerous news portals, ingesting news and other related content, making it the fastest expanding news delivery channel.
Compared to traditional forms of news distribution, such as newspapers and magazines, digital media offers a more dynamic and immersive experience in how news is given and received.
Such has been digital media’s growth that it has enveloped new realms such as social media. This has led to the demand for a new kind of media professional, one who can create content across genres ranging from text to videos to immersive and interactive and at the same time promote it on social media.
The scale and speed of digital media’s growth is mind-boggling. Every day there are new innovations in how news is disseminated.
These digital media professionals are redefining how stories are told and narratives built through their expertise in creating content such as blogs, web reports, podcasts, video blogs, 350-degre videos, immersive stories and interactive stories.
Armed with multiple tools and a deep understanding of new technology, these young professionals are redefining the way information is communicated.
However, even as the demand for such professionals is growing exponentially, the number of such highly trained and skilled individuals is limited.
If you have a way with words and a passion for technology and love being on social media, the digital media world awaits you. At the moment, with the increased demand, even those who do not have these skills, can learn and make a mark for themselves in this field.
If you are young, tech-savvy and want to make a mark in this new and emerging field, you must enrol yourself in a new-age media school such as the Times School of Media (TSOM) at Bennett University in Greater Noida.
