Demand for Participatory Media Many stakeholders no longer want to passively receive information, but rather actively contribute to content creation in interactive forums. The public in the United States, Canada, and Europe rank family, friends, and colleagues as more credible than company employees or CEOs. Wikipedia users have made nearly 170,000,000 edits since July 2002. The site’s daily traffic ranks seventh in global Web popularity, surpassing such sites as CNN.com.
