We deal with huge amounts of information every day. Most of it comes in the form of text, and video content has increased exponentially in the last years. But in todayâ€™s logic, users want more than access information — they want to do something with it. News content as it is serves its purpose to inform the audience. But, with the use of interactivity and new multimedia languages, we can really take them to a whole new level from news consumers to real news users. My proposal is to define content characteristics that will make news more usable and useful.
