SOCIAL RESPONSIBILITY-FOCUSED JOURNALISM IN THE INFORMATION AGE: CITIZEN JOURNALISM

Abstract

Author(s): Sinem ONAR AMBAY

Technological developments and the relentless flow of information have given rise to greater need for accurate and complete information. This has made it crucial for newspapers, which are the producers and distributors of this information, to have a sense of social responsibility. Our current Information Age, where the means to reaching information have become diversified and the flow of that information has reached significant proportions, has underscored the importance of the fundamental reorganization of the foundations of information in journalism and, related to this, social responsibility-focused citizen journalism. Since newspapers create for public consumption, within the Information Age, is crucial that they must be socially responsible. This imperative can be met by citizen journalism. Given its sense of social responsibility, citizen journalism must adopt strategies and policies that are compatible with business ethics and public expectations. While producing news, it must also act to protect the wellbeing and interest of society in light of realities. At a time when social consciousness has expanded, in order to create a strong, long-term and effective institutional image, the printed press must be socially responsible and the dynamics of citizen journalism must be sustained.
