Lessons the Guardian has learnt about community engagement online, Hannah Freeman, Guardian

  1. 1. Community at the Guardian Hannah Freeman @hannah_freeman hannah.freeman@theguardian.com
  2. 2. Open journalism Alan Rusbridger: ‘Open journalism is journalism which is fully knitted into the web of information that exists in the world today. It links to it; sifts and filters it; collaborates with it and generally uses the ability of anyone to publish and share material to give a better account of the world.’
  3. 3. 10 principles of open journalism 1. It encourages participation. It invites and/or allows a response 2. It is not an inert, "us" or "them", form of publishing 3. It encourages others to initiate debate, publish material or make suggestions. We can follow, as well as lead. We can involve others in the prepublication processes
  4. 4. 4. It helps form communities of joint interest around subjects, issues or individuals 5. It is open to the web and is part of it. It links to, and collaborates with, other material (including services) on the web 6. It aggregates and/or curates the work of others 7. It recognizes that journalists are not the only voices of authority, expertise and interest
  5. 5. 8. It aspires to achieve, and reflect, diversity as well as promoting shared values 9. It recognizes that publishing can be the beginning of the journalistic process rather than the end 10. It is transparent and open to challenge – including correction, clarification and addition
