Briggs Chapter 3

Posted by: | February 7, 2012 | No Comment |

JournalismNext by Mark Briggs

Chapter three was good because it showed me the difference between crowd-source reporting and open-source reporting. It taught me the importance in the two.

Crowd-sourcing can help solve communal issues. However, it is vital to know when it can be applied and when it will fail. Especially in journalism, people need to know what their target audience is, or the crowd-source will fail.

Open-sourcing is what I prefer, because (as Briggs states) it breaks down the wall between journalists and the public community. It makes them more accessible. Granted, people won’t always want to reach out to them, but it is nice to know that it’s an option.
