Social Networking

2 12 2011

Late – 10.30am  – Thursday, December 1st, 2011

Today, i learn a lot of think about social networking. Yes, we were always or most of us frequently use facebook or twitter in our daily life. But we do not know much about other social networking like WEB 2.0Lanscape is for producing news, but WEB 1.0 is for public user.

During our class discussion with Dr. Anderson on the Dec, 24th, 2011, we can’t watch the video. So do, today as Dr. Joanne said,the video for discussion next week.

I seldom open my facebook account. I do not have twitter but i have at least 5 blogs since 2000 but even one can’t maintain it because too busy with jobs as a broadcast journalist. Furthermore, as a full-time of UPM Master of  Science Journalism student…

I learn a lot of information and sources, a new for me, although i had attended of journalist courses, seminar and workshop but not that i learn on Dr. Joanne discussion today. These are a new think for me like innit, Pligg, MyCen News, blog aggregation. Google maps are not new for me because Google is very useful for any journalist who want to go to the event which he do not know the way to isolate place or venue.



Citizen Journalism by Dr. Anderson

2 12 2011

10.45am -Thursday (November 24th, 2011)

I came around 11am. While i receive Dr. Joanne messages via mobile phone, i was driving along the road to the UPM campus, as usual attending my class. However, after i receive Dr. Joanne messages, i still in the road and quiet jam during that time along Sungai Besi highway to UPM.

Frankly speaking, our discussion today replacement lecturer by Mr. Anderson is ‘Thinking about citizen journalism’ by Lewis, Kaufhold and Lasorsa. The other topic is New blogs related to the earlier topic. I was blur when Mr. Anderson asked my class to read and give some comment on it. Although, it is possible to give some point of critical views on that articles, but i manage too from my own understanding which i only read two paragraph (introduction), gatekeeping in the digital age, i manage to read until results..Thinking About Citizen Journalism. For News blogs written by Dr. Axel, i only read in page 1.

Very interesting also when Dr. Anderson sharing some new idea in journalism as well as his interest in Photojournalism…his thesis presentation on His Community of Ethnic Iban at a Long house, somewhere Sibu division, in Sarawak.  We were watching video on his project video, modelling, magazine covers, beautiful girls picture he took for his project…
