The Discourse of News Values

This chapter presents an empirical case study that applies discursive news values analysis (DNVA) to a corpus of images used across Facebook news feeds by established news media organizations in Australia, Canada, Ireland, United Kingdom, and the United States. It shows that DNVA of news photography can be used to examine journalism as social and semiotic practice, and how this approach can be combined with the analysis of other aspects of news practice (e.g. around the use of captions, image attribution, aspects of layout/templating) to provide insights into emerging news practices involving the use of images in social media and online. The chapter makes a valuable and unique contribution to the analysis of social media as used by news media organizations.

Keywords:   visual analysis, news photography, news values, social media, Facebook, news media organizations
