Student thesis: Master's Thesis


The evolution of cyberjournalism has been constant and challenging for mediacompanies, as well as for journalists in the era of convergence. Those responsible forthe information sites must consolidate practices such as convergence and thepotentiality of the medium and must risk on new ones, such as Data Journalism andVirtual Reality. In this report, the most viewed contents of the SIC Notícias website, ageneralist information website, are analyzed over two weeks in different months. Themain objective of this study is to identify the characteristics present in the analyzedjournalistic products. In order to provide an answer to this purpose, a content analysiswas carried out on the 40 most viewed contents on the SIC Notícias website, based onfive indicators: format, theme, links, middles of provenance and potentiality. This workhas as a starting point a theoretical framework, which will help to interpret and drawconclusions from the research results. The study concludes that the most viewedcontents are videos about international themes, which explore some potentialities of thedigital environment, but which do not appear as transmedia content.
