Digitalization Reshaping the Media in Japan

Smartphones became the main access point for digital news for the first time in Japan in 2019. While the usage of computers has dropped from 68% to 46%, smartphones have taken the lead with 48%. Japanese prefer to reach news mainly through Yahoo! News in online channels. Yahoo has editors to choose the eight top stories on the site instead of using algorithms to balance different viewpoints and genres. It publishes user-created articles besides journalist-created ones. The best example of media digitalization in Japan is Nikkei. Nikkei has started to publish news first online, before sending them for print and exclusive news to publish on Twitter.
