DFM chat on the ideal news product

AR dreams

Digital First Media friends and other journalists, members of the community and fans of journalism are invited to take part in a Twitter chat Wednesday at noon, Eastern Time, to talk about all things journalism.

Today we are going to take things from the user's side. What do you want in a news product?  What would it look like? And what things would you actually click on? Note —as shown from research and surveys — that people tend to respond on an idealized basis (everybody wants 10,000-word investigations!), but metrics show how news consumers actually behave. Is there a sweet spot? With that caveat, how do you currently consume the news and how would that be better? AND, what steps, if any, can newsrooms take today to get to that point. Is this sustainable?

If you want to be in the post chat archive, post a comment in the container or a tweet with the hashtag "#dfmchat" so it can automatically appear below.
