Emerging Era of Mobile Journalism

Technology Inceptions

Today was are witnessing emergence of a new type of journalism based on the mobile phones, fast replacing the journalism based on TV screens. In the recent years, mobile journalism has spread quickly around the world. Panu Karhunen, a Finnish journalist, has investigated whether and how mobile journalism allows journalists to get into the heart of the matter, giving them better access to the core of the story being reported.

 

In his study Karhunen concludes that “In many situations, mobile journalism can offer greater accessibility to a story than traditional TV journalism. Often, journalists get closer to the story and subject by working alone with a smart phone.”

 


However, there are many downsides to the mobile journalism. “The downsides are mostly related to the credibility of mobile journalists.” Smart phones also suffer from many technological disadvantages like lack of an optical zoom, poor performance in low light, etc.
