By Cherry Lo

(Hong Kong Apr 3 2012)- Smart phone has almost become a necessity of our modern life. On one hand, it makes the human life become convenience. On the other hand, it subverts the way of journalists reporting. Stephen Quinn, editor of the South China Morning Post Digital Development Department said that the era of "citizen journalists" is coming, but the status of professional reporters will not be replaced.


With the technological advancements, people can share the texts, photos and video through network. As long as one have a Smart mobile phones, everyone can play the role of the reporter. Compare to the traditional reporting, d TV stations often dispatched a large flow of interview cars which costs extremely expensive. The sources from the Internet users are also often used by the traditional media.


“Citizen journalists" will not undermine the status of professional reporters. said Stephen. He said that professional journalists have received professional training, for example, professional understanding of the laws of copyright, libel, or the accumulation of personal connections. The quality of "Citizen journalists" cannot be comparable.


In 2007, a reporter from the British Broadcasting Corporation (BBC) reported a bank theft. He just only used an old fashioned Nokia phone to take the video and finish interview. Today, a smart phone is often set with the camera, video recording. It is convenience for the reporter’s work. Stephen said that there is a Japanese man using smart phones to take “under skirt” photographies for the female passers.
