The Studies Done by Journalists for the Future in 2012

The developing of online media is becoming one of the most important questions in any country. More than one third of Armenian population now uses the Internet and this means that the Armenian content, the Internet contains, will have great importance in the course of time and it will influence on the opinion and position of any citizan of Republic of Armenia. By saying content we mean the available information in the Internet that is closely connected with Armenia and Armenians, no matter whether it is Armenian or a foreign language.

In 2012 “Journalists for the Future” NGO organized two experimental studies for the tendency of the content in the Armenian sphere of the Internet and for understanding the existing problems. Such kinds of studies have never been organized before.

One of the studied is “Monitoring of Armenian Online Media Coverage of May 6, 2012 Elections to RA National Assembly” which had the aim to establish the process of work done by online media during the elections that is during pre-elections 3 months and post-elections 2 weeks (from February 6 up to May 20, overall 105 days). A monitoring like this was conducted for the first time in Armenia during the elections.
