Al-Masry Al-Youm launches a citizen journalism service

Al-Masry Al-Youm has launched Monday a new service for citizen journalism titled Sharek” (Share), aiming for it to become a major venue for bloggers in Egypt to express the real pulse of the street with all its daily confrontations and crises, in addition to any witty material they would like to post.

With the developments in communication and social networking, citizens have become an integral and indispensable part in the reporting of events. The pictures and videos they take with their mobile phone cameras and the on-the-ground analysis add new aspects to stories and news, which the media must find important to cover.
Sharek will give bloggers an opportunity to express their fears, their dreams and their side of the stories for millions of people to share.
Users can share anything, from observations of walking in the street or simply writing about problems, hopes or dreams. Users can send in pictures and videos and Sharek promises to provide minute-by-minute follow-up.
Click here to open an account with Sharek to see the latest.
