SUAREZ VILLEGAS, Juan Carlos. Citizen journalism. Analysis of opinions of journalists from Spain, Italy and Belgium. Convergencia [online]. 2017, vol.24, n.74, pp.91-111. ISSN 2448-5799.

One of the most significant changes in journalism over the last decade has been the participation of citizens in the information process, establishing various forms of interaction with professional journalists and the media. This development has established a new journalistic culture based on dynamic interaction with the audience that improved information processes in various ways. However, this active role of the audience can not substantiate the so called citizen journalism, because it lacks the necessary conditions to ensure quality information that secures constructive and civilized public debate.

Keywords : journalism; citizenship; interaction; democracy; information.
