ABSTRACT. The aim of the present study is to examine and evaluate the use of social media as a source of news, the collaborative co-creation of news, and the dynamics of professional news practices. The results of the current study converge with prior research on the potential relevance of the audience as news sources, innovative forms of news production, and the need for verification and trust measures in social networks. This research makes conceptual and methodological contributions to the impact of social media on media consumption, the dissemination of news through online interactions, and the reliability of the information available in social networks. pp. 104–109
