Nowadays, many people like sharing (possessive pronoun missing) opinion and showing their daily life to friends through social networking platforms, such as Facebook, Weibo and Twitter. However, “Journalists have to be (aware and careful-choose one) of making statement on the internet,” said Ivan Yau, former anchor of TVB, Now and Cable in the general assembly in Hong Kong Shue Yan University yesterday.


Since a former reporter of TVB has posted an article which (has covered meaning of rehabilitate the Tiananmen crackdown on Weibo-unclear what the post was about). Public has argued whether media worker is suitable to publish their political opinion on (article) internet or not. Yau thought journalists should not express their opinion on the web.


He thinks the internet is a public place and the spoken words on the internet may affect other people. Therefore, he rarely shares his daily life on the internet. “If the incident is related to moral issue, I will consider posting my opinion on the internet,” said Yau. He thinks everyone, especially journalist, should think twice before making speech on line. It is because the opinion will affect the media’s neutral image towards the public if it has any incorrect information.


However, he thinks it will be alright if journalists share their own opinion in their own privacy group, but not (to?) mass.
