  • Citizen and Mainstream Journalism
    • Journalism is where we get information that we can trust
    • The speed of people getting response and update the follow-up information is way beyond our imagination. That is why we need citizen journalism.

  • Citizen Journalism
    • Example
    • The Tunisian Uprise
    • 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.
    • Publications have been shut down and journalists blacklisted for crossing the country’s three red lines: Islam, the Western Sahara, and the monarchy.
    • Demonstrate the implications of the social revolution in redistributing power throughout society.
    • -Spread person-to-person by mobile devices, unrest mounted amid Tunisia’s newly connected generation outside the glare of network TV cameras.
    • -The revolution was not televised but tweeted, exposing the shortcomings of traditional media throughout the world.
    • -Mobile phones and social media were crucial to information flow that helped protestors gather and plan their demonstrations.
  • Citizen Journalism
    • Example
    • The Syrian Up rise
    • Known as the Facebook page of Syrian Revolution 2011.
    • Mainstream, new media became increasingly reliant on citizen journalism due to state-imposed media blackout.
    • -It is bridging the gap between what activists are doing on the ground and the classic media
    • 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.
    • It provides as a voice for thousands of Syrians citizens.
    • A major role citizen journalism is playing is that it is magnifying the dispossession and despair of those who cannot speak
  • Citizen Journalism
    • Example
    • The London Riot
    • U.K., a nation addicted to smart phones.
    • - Mobile phones have become weaponised.
    • Citizen journalists can fill the gap in two ways:
    • -Used to spread of violence and destruction by gangs of rioters.
    • - Media and politicians created the impression that the riots were orchestrated by ‘Twitter mobs’, ‘Facebook mobs’ and ‘Blackberry mobs’.
    • -Thugs and looters are taking advantage the BlackBerry Messenger (BBM) service to other troublemakers, alerting them to riot scenes and inciting further violence.
    • The positive side is that online media can be used to stop the riots and clean up.
