Digitalization of Journalism

Digitalization in journalism started early. We could say that it predates the arrival of the internet. It began with the use of primitive computers in 1952 and later, in the 1990s, the media adapted to the web, initially through commercial networks.

The Spanish Society of Journalism, since its birth in 1989, has been concerned through research and study with examining those key issues for understanding the functioning of the media, the evolution of journalistic genres, the work of journalists and the conse-quences that their work has on citizens. It also maintains a close relationship with the professional world, is an institutional partner of the Federation of Associations of Journalists of Spain (FAPE) and participates in its activities.
