As part of Friday’s Value of Journalism conference to be held in London by the BBC College of Journalism and media thinktank Polis, former broadcast journalist and now Polis director Charlie Beckett will release a new report looking at ‘networked journalism’.
In the report Beckett describes ‘networked journalism’ as a “synthesis of traditional news journalism and the emerging forms of participatory media enabled by web 2.0 technologies such as mobile phones, email, websites, blogs, microblogging and social networks”. It looks at:
- “The value of connectivity for the networked journalist”;
- Online communities and news production;
- Networks and breaking news;
- Independent networked journalism;
- And ‘grassroots networked journalism’ – the chapter on which is reproduced, with permission, on Journalism.co.uk.
