The concept of citizen journalism is anything but new. What is new, however, is the way in which people who wouldn’t have previously entertained the thought of becoming involved in such a form of journalism are taking to it.
Well, that is only natural when we have sites like Tvype around.
In essence, what this site does is to bring together citizen journalists and media buyers like never before. The former get an immediate chance to upload their footage and have it marketed by the latter in an immediate way.
For its part, media buyers pay only for the content that they effectively use. That is, there are no contracts or base fees to speak about – they only pay for each picture and video that they use, and the fact that a monitoring team is involved goes some way into ensuring the quality of the material that is procurable through the site.
Finally, an iPhone app is on the works. That will be an interesting addition to the site if only because it will let people upload videos right as they are shot, giving the whole process an even further degree of immediacy and transcendence.
