In the modern society, anyone can grab their camera, press record and BOOM! They’re a Journalist.
Where will a Journalism degree take you when individuals run rampant with their devices recording information and positing it online as their own news stories. At this point in time, sites such as facebook are online forums for this idea of citizen journalism.
This idea of citizen journalism is formed as we collate information to create a collective intelligence online.
We began as “the audience“, however as more individuals become the content creators and prosumers, legacy media will have no-where to go. Freelance journalists and writers are the future of my degree. Right now, I am a journalist, writing a report on how to become a journalist as well as where this degree may take me.
