Briggs Ch. 3 – ‘Crowd-Powered Collaboration’

This chapter showed the power of the people…in journalism.

Citizen journalism


  • Crowdsourcing/distributed reporting – demonstrates committed power of the community for a project
  • Open-source reporting – using transparency in reporting
  • Pro-am journalism – journalists are no longer the gatekeepers and let the audience publish on the same platform as themselves.
  • Beatblogging – build a social network around traditional news beat then bring the leaders and listen to what they have to say.
  • Link journalism – linking to the competition’s sites.
  • “Citizen journalism” – concept where the public/readers publish their stories. Showed that print was still appealing to the readers.
