This week’s jpod looks at how Al Jazeera English programme The Stream, the new ITV News website and NME.com are embracing social media contributions.

Journalism.co.uk hears examples of how the social media community can set the news agenda, participate in the story, and how news organisations are using the passion and enthusiasm of the audience to shape output.

There are also examples of how a reader comment can turn into a headline and how the outlets are harnessing live activity streams.

Journalism.co.uk technology correspondent Sarah Marshall speaks to:

  • Malika Bilal, digital producer and co-host of The Stream
  • Jason Mills, editor of web development at ITV News
  • Luke Lewis, editor of NME.com

You can hear future podcasts by signing up to the Journalism.co.uk iTunes podcast feed.
