Allvoices: Collaborative News Reporting

Say goodbye to traditional journalism and news reporting. This post on The Inquisitr discusses the latest launch of Allvoices, a news service that aggregates content from visitor submissions and ranks them, sort of like Digg and Technorati.

The idea behind this newly built community it that the CEO, Amra Tareen, wanted to enrich traditional news with alternative viewpoints. News reporting is too often censored by global media organizations, and so its users can submit its own coverage. The ranking system and its filters ensure correct placement of valid submissions. Tareen mentions her ideal model:

“Our model of merging user-generated content and professional news sources into one community will create the first true people’s media”

It’ll be surely interesting to see how the community reports on controversial topics like political issues and global conflicts.
