The concept of interactive journalism highlights the potential for the democratization of journalism by allowing the audience to play an active role in the process of news making within the realm of professional journalism. Findings suggest both positive and negative implications of interactive journalism. The majority of users is not interested in producing content and mainstream media attempt to control participation, while adopting a market rather a civic oriented approach to UGC. Yet, recent evidence suggests that digital start-ups, hyperlocal news media and specific social groups are collaborating in the direction of a more pluralistic news agenda aiming to elevate public debate and deal with society’s problems.||URI:||https://ktisis.cut.ac.cy/handle/10488/17607||ISSN:||9781118841679||DOI:||10.1002/9781118841570||Type:||Book Chapter|
