I have been finding a lot of news stations using bloggers to speak up about situations. It is not just in blogging online, by in-person interviews too. In fact, their names is usually displayed with the title ‘Blogger’ too!
I am not against this, but I found it quite an eye-opener in how news is changing to allow bloggers to be credible sources. Of course, bloggers can contain a wealth of knowledge, but will we see some title say ‘Twitterer’ or ‘Facebook user’ for a person’s title. As fantastical as it sounded, I am laughing about the idea that they may include Blogging101 as a Journalism course.
I love blogging and social media. It is a great way to share the information to a larger audience that I have not gotten to share before when just a blogger. I am just concerned on how far the media will take blogging in conjunction to sharing the news. Will our news one day read in l33t speak, and our newspapers be extinct? I hope not. Not everyone has a computer or even access to the Internet. In fact, for some it is a pretty scary concept.
Hopefully if news becomes greener, we might have the quality news online that we had before, even it is comes from a blogger.
