Does social media make taboo, third-rail topics, newsworthy?


For better or worse, our hyper competitive online news culture morphs what is socially acceptable water-cooler talk. Social media raises the question, “What is newsworthy?”

With endless choice available for search, “Are all topics are open for discussion?”

Within this new news/business landscape, at the intersection of change, innovation brings topics once buried into the public’s hands like weed, sex-ting, wiener pic tweets and public searches for terrorists. Good or bad? Doesn’t matter much – it’s here. 

While many may dislike the newly scattered attention deprived news, you cannot deny that interest stories now have access to a playing field that was once members only. Where are the really controversial editorials promoting change?
