The Web 2.0 Story: From Conception to Birth
Blogger Alison Gow has published her ideas on the way Web 2.0 tools have changed the way journalists show and tell their stories.
In her thought-provoking post on The Lifecycle of a News Story, she compares the ways reporters source, research, present, share and follow up news articles in a Web 1.0 and a Web 2.0 world.
For example, she suggests that Web 2.0 tools enable journalists to source potential stories through searches on microblogging platforms like Twitter or via Facebook.
Gow, who works at the Liverpool Daily Post, also asserts that story research can now incorporate crowdsourcing using social media, the creation of online surveys and interaction with the audience using blogs.
