“Don’t miss the gift given by God. That is microblogs,” Qian-gang, the author of “The Great Tangshan Earthquake”, said at a seminar on new media generation organized by Hong Kong Shue Yan University today.

“Plane delays made me go crazy in the past. Now, whenever there is a two-hour-delay, I don’t care,” said Li Fang, a senior executive in charge of Tencent Weibo. He also said that a smart phone and mobile-internet allowed him to have fun through mico-blogging.

Li believes that people will never drop the need for information, they just shift their way of satisfying it.

Micro-blogs: a new news platform

On 23 July, 2011, two bullets trains collided in Wenzhou, killing 40 people. Micro-bloggers released information about the accident 20 minutes faster than the Xinhua News Agency.

Browsers now are more than just a receiver. They can act as public reporters. Li said that their reporters sometimes co-operated with creditable bloggers who are at the locales to obtain information. [Adding the 'creditable' adjective was a great touch.]

Although the public can act as reporters, Qian said, “Reporting in-depth reports still needs professional teams.”

Lam Yok-fong,Interim Head of the Department of Communications at the University of Macau, said that, as a reporter, values were more important than skills. The values included judgment of news worthiness, objectivity, morals, and also following the law.

Qian hopes that news consumers can pay attention to the accuracy and the moral judgment of the news from public reporters. He said that 80% of the influential voices came from 20% of the people.

For the news of the Wenzhou 723 train crash, some newspaper editors could not publish it on the front pages due to some restrictions. Some of the editors have now found micro-blogs to be a new way to publish the “killed” front pages.

Some Hong Kongers also uploaded the news produced by Hon Kong news agencies to their micro-blogs, announcing to the mainlanders what was happening.
