Introducing – Citizen Journalism on Adhysteria.com
Citizen journalism, also known as public or participatory journalism or democratic journalism, is the act of citizens “playing an active role in the process of collecting, reporting, analyzing and disseminating news and information.”
Some have called it networked journalism, open source journalism, and citizen media. Communication has changed greatly with the advent of the Internet. The Internet has enabled citizens to contribute to journalism, without professional training.
The idea behind citizen journalism is that people without professional journalism training can use the tools of modern technology and the global distribution of the Internet to create, augment or fact-check media on their own or in collaboration with others. For example, you might write about a city council meeting on your blog or in an online forum. Or you could fact-check a newspaper article from the mainstream media and point out factual errors or bias on your blog. Or you might snap a digital photo of a newsworthy event happening in your town and post it online. Or you might videotape a similar event and post it on a site such as Adhysteria.
Now you can make Adhysteria.com your home for citizen journalism. New features allow CJ’s to discuss and comment on the videos , blogs, forums etc In addition to this photos can be added of stories along with embeding of pictures and videos from other site.
