  • 34. Questions
    In the interrelated process of the development of technologies and citizen journalism, which one is the facilitator and which one is the follower?
    What kind of news you would prefer to read and you would rely more in the mainstream media and what kind in the citizen journalism, i.e. crisis in citizen journalism and science news in biology in the mainstream one? Why?
    The biggest exposure of the citizen journalism comes in crises, like natural and human disasters, politics, violation of human rights and etc. If we consider that there is no more crises in the world, do you believe citizen journalism will still exist focusing only on art, science, happy people’s lives and other exclusively positive things? And do you think it still will be so popular and claimed?
