This article examines the first samples of 3D (immersive) journalism practises which have had sensational impacts in the news industry recently. The most important promise of immersive journalism is to transform the linear, traditional model of communication in which audience have been passive to a model in which reader/audience is an active subject of the news story.

Later by the apperance of technical solutions that enable the creation of 3D effects, the hierarchy between the users and producers have been lifted to some extent in the narration of the news and the reader/audience have had the chance to be positioned directly in the news story. The present immersive journalism samples are consumable only through technological equipments.

This article examines the content of immersive journalism samples produced by news industry moguls like The Guardian and the New York Times and evaluates the potentials and risks of these extraordinary experiences in effecting traditional journalism norm
