  23. 23. Journalism’s Special Relationship with Social Media<br />Journalists must be able to pivot quickly between the idea of using the community as a source of news and as the audience for news, because they are both.<br />David Clinch, editorial director for Storyful<br />(Storyful uses the power of social networks to create an authentic, cooperative and socially useful journalism)<br />
  24. 24. Collaborative Reporting<br />“This requires a shift in the mindset of journalists, who are used to deciding what news is and how it is covered, produced and distributed. Social media by its very definition is a participatory medium. There is a potential for greater engagement and connection with the community, but only if journalists are open to ceding a degree of editorial control to the community.”<br />Alfred Hermida, professor of integrated journalism at the University of British Columbia.<br />
  25. 25.

Anderson, assistant professor of media culture at City University in New York<br />
