Oxfam Scotland's plans for a citizen journalist network - Be Good Be Social 27th Oct 2010

  1. 1. Making Media Social Citizen Journalists
  2. 2. Why bother using social media? It’s not about “doing social media”- it’s about looking at your aims and then asking how you can use social media to achieve them.
  3. 3. Can social media change the world? Maybe… New ways of communicating have changed things before. Our aims are ambitious- we can’t achieve them on our own.
  4. 4. We’re very excited We’re told there’s apathy- but we get an amazing reaction online. We want to bring together a network of citizen journalists who share our values. The next step in using social media.
  5. 5. Why we’re doing it Time Freedom Ideas Engagement A Right to Reply Skills
  6. 6. What’s a citizen journalist anyway? Inadequate, pimpled and single? Someone who blogs, tweets, makes films, writes to their paper, uses carrier pigeons… … and then tells their friends about it.
  7. 7. Who is a citizen journalist? Concerned about poverty- at home or abroad. Want to move beyond “clicktivism”. Busy- a new way of volunteering. Not necessarily interested in meetings.
  8. 8. Who is a citizen journalist? Helena: “ It’s incredibly important to discuss these things. If they aren’t discussed, how will they be changed? ”
  9. 9. What if people say things we don’t like? Guidelines and values. People say things anyway… this way at least we can be part of the debate. Being a citizen journalist is a responsibility.
  10. 10. How it works Posterous blog- a place to share. Sign-up procedure. We stay in touch. Cheap- and simple.
  11. 11. What the network is NOT A website. A new social network. A closed group.
