Terry Brock stated that “many new apps have demonstrated that information is gathered through means other than through top-down methods: our relationships and social networks are where many of us our now gathering our information” (Dirt, 2011).
This statement represents the growing trend of community slowly molding its space within traditional “news” and Journalism. We all see ourselves as informed and autonomous consumers, who have educated themselves within the realm of social media. This new wave of community sharing has in many ways ‘sabotaged’ the food chain within which the consumer is at the bottom and the Government, Journalists and large enterprises are at the top.
We, the consumers, have become smart, cautious and have raised our voice to be heard, a global phenomenon that has spread across many layers within social life. People are no longer willing to accept the traditional media as de facto. Utilizing Facebook, Twitter and blogs is one of the most powerful tools we; the people, have ever been given insofar as being heard as individuals.
This “noise” is enlightening and informative, yet distracting and disturbing at times. If once we would read the newspaper and share our personal opinions with friends and family, today we could potentially speak to the entire world.
