Most digital news consumers now get information from Web-native sources like The Huffington Post, but they turn to â€œestablishedâ€ news outlets like the New York Times, CNN or Fox News for big events and mobile news, according to new research.Â That is one finding from a national survey commissioned by The New York Times that examines the cross-platform behaviors of news consumers.
Important findings of this survey:
- Established newspaper brands are the leading news sources on smartphones and tablets in the US
- Despite all the social sharing buttons littering news sites, the study finds the top methods of sharing news are still word of mouth and email.
