    Does Social Media Mean the End of Traditional Media?

    In a recent blog post, Ken Dowell, executive vice president for PR Newswire, shared the results of a Harris Interactive Poll, which found that more than 55 percent of adults in the U.S. believe traditional media will no longer exist as we know it in 10 years.

    Yet, 67 percent of those same respondents said they prefer to get their news via such traditional sources as newspapers, television and print magazines.

    Why the schizophrenia when it comes to this issue? I constantly hear people say they think traditional media is on life support, all the while they're reading the latest issue of Newsweek or the Daily News.

    Evelyn Tipacti, community editor for ProfNet Connect, recently shared her thoughts on whether there's still room for traditional media.

    What do you think? Can traditional and social media co-exist, or will traditional media die a quick (or not-so-quick) death?
