Mapping Digital Media: Finland
The Mapping Digital Media project examines the global opportunities and risks created by the transition from traditional to digital media. Covering 60 countries, the project examines how these changes affect the core democratic service that any media system should provide: news about political, economic, and social affairs.
Traditional media, news platforms, and public service media have maintained their historically strong position in the digital era in Finland. Traditional media also dominate the news offering on digital platforms and social media.
Digitization has, however, increased the number of television channels and competition for audiences, and online news media use has grown rapidly. While ways of accessing news content have changed, traditional news usage is still common and a large proportion of the population watches scheduled television news at least once a week. Newspaper circulation figures are also still high, despite the trend of decline.
