Before whenever we hear the roaring siren of the firetruck we either dial the fire station or tune-in to radio to know the whereabouts of the fire.
Today we tune-in to Social Media, and I am writing this blogpost, while firemen are still fighting a fire in Lahug, Cebu City.
My Facebook Newsfeed is also in fire..
It started with a question..
Then pictures started to come in..
Social Media really alter news consumption, reportorial can be realtime, and anybody with a smartphone with either WLAN /Data connections can be a journalist.
