Will Social Media News overtake Traditional Media News?

Social Media especially Facebook and Twitter are growing very fast. And, they are becoming professional/business tools. I had published many posts about the fast growth of the Social Media. And, we had created many scripts for utilizing the Social Media effectively for the business growth.

Recently, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg had published his marriage photo in his Facebook profile. Since his marriage was happened secretly without the knowledge of the traditional Media (i-e Television and Print Media).

My facebook News Feed was immediately updated with the Mark Zuckerberg's Marriage photo within few minutes. So, I was able to get the news quickly without requiring the print media or television or any news reporters.

And, therefore I just prepared a simple video about the marriage of Mark Zuckerberg and Pricilla Chan using the information available from Facebook profile of Mark Zuckerberg and Pricilla Chan. And, then I uploaded this video in YouTube before the main stream sites publish the News about Mark Zuckerberg's marriage.

You can watch below this video.

This video may not be high quality. But it conveyed the message about surprise marriage of Mark Zuckerberg before the mainstream media publish this news.

So, thousands of people started viewing this video. From this incident we can clearly understand that the social Media is competing high with the mainstream media. But I am not sure whether Social Media can overtake the traditional media. Because the social Media used to give and spread lot of fake news. It is very difficult to authenticate the reliability of the Social Media News.

What do you think about the Future of Social Media in the News delivering part? Will it overtake Traditional Media?
