citizen journalism

People from the public who play an active role in collecting, analysing and reporting news and information can be called citizen journalists.

This type of online journalism is becoming very popular amongst many people as it allows the public to participate in a particular society. Ordinary people do provide independent, reliable, accurate, wide-ranging and relevant information just as good as professional journalists.

There are various websites which allow citizen journalists to post their stories and articles. Examples of citizen journalists could be personal blogs and there are various websites which allow the public to become reporters such as the Korean website Ohmynews.com and bayerosphere.com.
