Media Trends We're Watching in 2019

December 17, 2018

Next year will bring more upheaval to the media industry, but Gabriella Schwarz, the managing editor of Flipboard, is an optimist. She thinks trends in immersive content, from long-form video to annotated text, will drive growth in digital media, as consumers clamor for more high-quality "deep dive" content. Part of that will be the continued development of VR and AR as a way to tell certain stories, she said. She's also optimistic about trends in local journalism, personalization, and the fight against fake news.
