INTRODUCTION & GAPS
Online journalism has created new forms and new genres.
The audience is more involved in news production and distribution.
Social media have lowered the barriers for citizen contributions.
But, eyewitness journalism in social media has several disadvantages:
the sheer amount of information provided is overwhelming and cannot reach
everyone;
information pushed forward by new contributions vanishes from readers' screens;
several sources talk about the same events but from different perspectives;
lacks a clear storyline which calls for the need to have someone to make sense out of
the flow of information, to find the best content and to give credit to the right
sources.

LITERATURE REVIEW
Gatekeeping Gatewatching
Definition
It is the practice of deciding why one story is selected to be
reported and the other is not (Bruns, 2006). It concerns
the newsgathering and news production processes and the
reasons given by newspapers editors for discarding
possible news issues (White, 1950).
Gatewatching should represent the new role of media
organizations which have lost the power to choose what news
to include or to exclude in the editorial processes (Bruns,
2006). Gatewatchers do not embody journalists’ roles but they
amalgamate traditional gatekeeping processes with
information aggregation (Bruns, 2003).
Characteristics
Organizational factors and journalists’ workflows
(Beam, 1990; Reese & Ballinger, 2001; Shoemaker et
al., 2001);
Events concurring within the time frame of publication
Unpredicted stories (Singer, 1998);
Events diverging from others already published (Singer,
1998);
Expert judgment motivation (Berkowitz, 1997);
Political ideology (Chang & Lee, 1992);
Education (Peterson, 1979);
Other background experiences (Peterson, 1979);
Class position (Gans, 1979);
And career pressures(Gans, 1979).
Gatewatching is based on accessible information and
sources (Bruns, 2003).
The public is an active reader by taking some of the roles of
traditional gatekeepers, such as the assessment of sources
and misinformation bias moderated by gatewatchers’
comments (Bruns, 3003).
Three stages of Gatewatching (Bruns, 2008):
1. Disclosure and access to original sources of information;
2. Openness towards users to check input information;
3. Participation of users in all stages of news production.
Examples Traditional newspapers
Slashdot, IndyMedia, Kuro5hin, MediaChannel, OhmyNews &
Wikinews
AJM 5ISOJ 2012
MEDIA CONTENT CURATION
From a structural point of view, main components of curated stories are:
The original contributions curated from social and/or conventional media;
The context and background information provided by the author;
Additional meta-data as date and time of publication, author and other such
similar information. The number of provided additional meta-information
depends on the tool used to curate and create the story.
Key aspects of media content curation based on gatewatching (Bruns, 2005) are
the following:
All submitted stories are published instantly (no editorial intervention at the
input or output stage);
Where editorial decisions are made, they are entirely transparent to users;
News stories and the entire website system itself are freely redistributable.

DATA GATHERING AND CODING PROCESS
Sample
450 Storify’s stories whose Yemen (43), Syria (74), Barhain (74), Libya (96), Egypt (96),
more than one revolution (66).
Period from January-February 2011 to August 2011.
Key words searched in Google: revolution, rebellion, freedom, flag, fight and civil war,
main cities, name of the dictators + the country name (There was no search engine
directly in the website at the time of the study).
Coding

CONCLUSIONS
RQ1: Which are the sources employed in social media curation?
Social media curation comprise several sources, while at the same
time posting one’s own story as the primary source of information.
Social media curation gives access to internal and external sources in
ways that are unique and add enough value to attract news users.
RQ2: What are the types of interactive features commonly adopted in
social media curation?
Results reveal that curation glues existing social media content and
traditional media content without creating original news itself.
Readers can quickly access of news delivery since new stories can be
published as soon as source information is found anywhere on the
Web.

RQ3: Is social media curation affecting the levels of gates?

  • 2. AJM 2ISOJ 2012 Characteristics and similarities of media content curation with gatewatching processes. Potential roles of media content curation to be a filter for social media content. Potential changes imposed by media content curation on the media landscape. GOALS
  • 3. AJM 3ISOJ 2012 INTRODUCTION & GAPS Online journalism has created new forms and new genres. The audience is more involved in news production and distribution. Social media have lowered the barriers for citizen contributions. But, eyewitness journalism in social media has several disadvantages: the sheer amount of information provided is overwhelming and cannot reach everyone; information pushed forward by new contributions vanishes from readers' screens; several sources talk about the same events but from different perspectives; lacks a clear storyline which calls for the need to have someone to make sense out of the flow of information, to find the best content and to give credit to the right sources.
  • 4. AJM 4ISOJ 2012 LITERATURE REVIEW Gatekeeping Gatewatching Definition It is the practice of deciding why one story is selected to be reported and the other is not (Bruns, 2006). It concerns the newsgathering and news production processes and the reasons given by newspapers editors for discarding possible news issues (White, 1950). Gatewatching should represent the new role of media organizations which have lost the power to choose what news to include or to exclude in the editorial processes (Bruns, 2006). Gatewatchers do not embody journalists’ roles but they amalgamate traditional gatekeeping processes with information aggregation (Bruns, 2003). Characteristics Organizational factors and journalists’ workflows (Beam, 1990; Reese & Ballinger, 2001; Shoemaker et al., 2001); Events concurring within the time frame of publication Unpredicted stories (Singer, 1998); Events diverging from others already published (Singer, 1998); Expert judgment motivation (Berkowitz, 1997); Political ideology (Chang & Lee, 1992); Education (Peterson, 1979); Other background experiences (Peterson, 1979); Class position (Gans, 1979); And career pressures(Gans, 1979). Gatewatching is based on accessible information and sources (Bruns, 2003). The public is an active reader by taking some of the roles of traditional gatekeepers, such as the assessment of sources and misinformation bias moderated by gatewatchers’ comments (Bruns, 3003). Three stages of Gatewatching (Bruns, 2008): 1. Disclosure and access to original sources of information; 2. Openness towards users to check input information; 3. Participation of users in all stages of news production. Examples Traditional newspapers Slashdot, IndyMedia, Kuro5hin, MediaChannel, OhmyNews & Wikinews
  • 5. AJM 5ISOJ 2012 MEDIA CONTENT CURATION From a structural point of view, main components of curated stories are: The original contributions curated from social and/or conventional media; The context and background information provided by the author; Additional meta-data as date and time of publication, author and other such similar information. The number of provided additional meta-information depends on the tool used to curate and create the story. Key aspects of media content curation based on gatewatching (Bruns, 2005) are the following: All submitted stories are published instantly (no editorial intervention at the input or output stage); Where editorial decisions are made, they are entirely transparent to users; News stories and the entire website system itself are freely redistributable.

  • 12. AJM 12ISOJ 2012 CONCLUSIONS RQ1: Which are the sources employed in social media curation? Social media curation comprise several sources, while at the same time posting one’s own story as the primary source of information. Social media curation gives access to internal and external sources in ways that are unique and add enough value to attract news users. RQ2: What are the types of interactive features commonly adopted in social media curation? Results reveal that curation glues existing social media content and traditional media content without creating original news itself. Readers can quickly access of news delivery since new stories can be published as soon as source information is found anywhere on the Web.
