Searching for a new revenue model

From the folks at the website, here are eight news media business trends for 2010. They are:

  1. Social media monetization
  2. Revenue beyond advertising
  3. As publications fold, others become lean and mean
  4. Growth of hyperlocal and community models
  5. Local advertising grows
  6. Local advertising model emerge
  7. To charge or not to charge
  8. The freemium model

All are provocative, but it is interesting to note the role hyperlocal and community-based journalism is significant.
