Text topic: Contemporary Journalism - Trends
Text author: Тамара Вученовић
In The World’s Eternal Humming I research civil journalism in digital age (especially online journalism), its basic characteristics and attributes, its phenomenal aspects, its relation to professional journalists and bloggers as well as the cooperation of media and citizen - reporters. I also analyze the key attributes of the screen culture and the digital paradigm – the radical media convergence and information overload. The paper offers some possible answers to the following questions: how can media follow those changes, how can media discuss various matters and cooperate with their audience? What are possible ways for media to give professional help to the growing needs of the citizens to express themselves and announce their stance in the global digital network? And is it actually necessary? In the conclusion I propose a short critical review on the position and the role of the citizen (online) journalism today.
