Communications writing is found everywhere - from business, to public relations and online writing and articles, to name a few.
This is not journalism. Communications is not news. You would be shocked to note that 70% of email communication is usually spam according Symantec. Four years ago the average of 175-million Twitter tweets every day that formed part of useless chatting or spammy Tweets. Just imagine what this total is now, in 2015.
Communications is different to journalism and focuses on various other topics and systems towards communicating the community. It is, for example, a promotive form of writing that assists companies in finding more clients etc.Journalism and the media industry, however, are also occupying these social media fields, such as Twitter, LinkedIn, online websites, Facebook, YouTube and other online publishing formats. The difference is that it provides useful information, such as business, finance, entertainment, opinion, assertion, news and feature articles and advertising, etc. Propaganda, however, also serves a part of the media industry. How do we know what is propaganda and what is objective news? Well, most media groups that are respected and known are usually there to provide the community with objective, free and fair information flow.
While journalism occupies a much smaller space than the talk, entertainment, opinion, assertion, advertising and propaganda that dominate the media universe, it is nevertheless perceived as being more valuable than most of the “stuff out there.”
News provides the community with valuable information that can alter decisions towards making the best decisions, and a systematic process that allows journalists to provide truthful information and facts, and then communicate it to the public.
