The rise of TikTok has provided another platform for news organisations to provide news to their audiences. However, each news platform shows news slightly differently.
ABC uses direct footage from their stories on TikTok with a quick description written at the bottom of the video
Sky News Australia take a different approach where they have the online story in the background and the reporter in front doing a quick 1-minute video grab.
Each newsroom, takes a slightly different angle on how they want to deliver news on TikTok. I am not sure what way I like it best. I am not even sure I am ready for the news to be on TikTok yet as I use the platform as a way to wind down or kill time.
While I was looking at videos to do this blog post I did come across a few journalists who have put up videos showing the transformation of their presenting skills over time. I found this encouraging to see, as I was able to get glimpses of how journalists improve once they have finished their university degrees. I also found it quite empowering to see journalists willing to share some detail about how their career is going on social media platforms.
