New media require new professions. The digitalization of media and growing amount of online platforms and mobile media have created new technical possibilities as well as new formats and forms of content. Professional capacities have been diverted. New professions have been created and are required. Graphic designers, software experts, video journalists, database experts and app developers now form an integral part of the media landscape. What is the situation in developing countries? What about traditional job outlines? Which professions are needed most and is a lack of specialists hindering media in developing business?
