Transcript of Citizen Journalism
What is Citizen Journalism?
Due to the fact that its not "professional journalism", Citizen Journalism can often be underrated.
Citizen Journalism is defined as "the collection, dissemination, and analysis of news and information by the general public, especially by means of the internet." (Oxford)
By this definition, anyone who owns a phone
can be a journalist.
Media convergence is changing the was we consume media, as well as the way we consume the world around us - inspiring passive audiences to become active by producing, sharing and consuming
Citizen Journalism is just as important as "professional" journalism, as it provides us with a new perspective and gives us more depth to news stories and social issues - both media platforms are able to thrive off each other.
What does this mean for traditional media journalism? Will the field continue to thrive - or be forever changed due to these active audiences?
"Because citizen journalism is known to inform and educate and report from within crisis so as to enrich traditional journalism for the general public to better understand the story there is no need to emphasise its importance. Collaborating with mainstream journalism, though, would be and added value to it because standing alone it is not credible."
