  3. 3. From the Reading <ul><li>Earthquake in California in 1989 </li></ul><ul><li>Since the 1990s, bloggers and freelancers used their own way to expose the breaking new at the first moment </li></ul><ul><li>The back-story of Bill Clinton and Monica Lewinsky </li></ul><ul><li>Matt Drudge: ‘I am a citizen first and a reporter second. The people have a right to know, not the editors who think they know better’ </li></ul><ul><li>CJ: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=q3QtzY7k__A&feature=related </li></ul>
  4. 4. Citizen and Mainstream Journalism <ul><li>Journalism is where we get information that we can trust </li></ul><ul><li>The speed of people getting response and update the follow-up information is way beyond our imagination. That is why we need citizen journalism. </li></ul><ul><li>http://groundviews.org/about/ </li></ul>
  5. 5. Taking the South-East Asia Tsunami as an example <ul><li>Traditional Journalism </li></ul><ul><li>http://news.nationalgeographic.com/news/2005/01/0107_050107_tsunami_index.html </li></ul><ul><li>Citizen Journalism </li></ul><ul><li>http://www.jw-archive.org/2010/10/deadly-tsunami-hits-islands-in-western.html </li></ul><ul><li>http://groundviews.org/2009/12/26/better-governance-the-biggest-lesson-of-2004-tsunami/ </li></ul><ul><li>Combination </li></ul><ul><li>http://tsunami2004videoarchive.com/ </li></ul>
  6. 6. Citizen Journalism <ul><li>Example </li></ul><ul><li>The Tunisian Uprise </li></ul><ul><li>Young activists in several countries across the region put forth calls for demonstrations on YouTube and Facebook, emulating their Tunisian and Egyptian counterparts before them. </li></ul><ul><li>Publications have been shut down and journalists blacklisted for crossing the country’s three red lines: Islam, the Western Sahara, and the monarchy. </li></ul><ul><li>Demonstrate the implications of the social revolution in redistributing power throughout society. </li></ul><ul><li>-Spread person-to-person by mobile devices, unrest mounted amid Tunisia’s newly connected generation outside the glare of network TV cameras. </li></ul><ul><li>-The revolution was not televised but tweeted, exposing the shortcomings of traditional media throughout the world. </li></ul><ul><li>-Mobile phones and social media were crucial to information flow that helped protestors gather and plan their demonstrations. </li></ul>
  7. 7. Citizen Journalism <ul><li>Example </li></ul><ul><li>The Syrian Up rise </li></ul><ul><li>Known as the Facebook page of Syrian Revolution 2011. </li></ul><ul><li>Mainstream, new media became increasingly reliant on citizen journalism due to state-imposed media blackout. </li></ul><ul><li>-It is bridging the gap between what activists are doing on the ground and the classic media </li></ul><ul><li>Facebook, YouTube and Twitter emerged as a motor of regime-changing protests in Egypt and Tunisia, and have since been a source of information on demonstrations and killings in Syria for citizens and journalists alike. </li></ul><ul><li>It provides as a voice for thousands of Syrians citizens. </li></ul><ul><li>A major role citizen journalism is playing is that it is magnifying the dispossession and despair of those who cannot speak </li></ul>
  8. 8. Citizen Journalism <ul><li>Example </li></ul><ul><li>The London Riot </li></ul><ul><li>U.K., a nation addicted to smart phones. </li></ul><ul><li>- Mobile phones have become weaponised. </li></ul><ul><li>Citizen journalists can fill the gap in two ways: </li></ul><ul><li>-Used to spread of violence and destruction by gangs of rioters. </li></ul><ul><li>- Media and politicians created the impression that the riots were orchestrated by ‘Twitter mobs’, ‘Facebook mobs’ and ‘Blackberry mobs’. </li></ul><ul><li>-Thugs and looters are taking advantage the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service to other troublemakers, alerting them to riot scenes and inciting further violence. </li></ul><ul><li>The positive side is that online media can be used to stop the riots and clean up. </li></ul>http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=MxaTGwmCepQ&feature=player_embedded
