Mobile Journalism, which is also called Mojo, is getting popular all over the world. Journalists started to use their smart phones to take video and audio recording and photos for reporting (started when?).


Stephen Quinn is the digital development editor of South China Morning Post and he is also the author of (a-the) book “Mojo: Mobile Journalism in the Asian Region”. “Mojo is important as it can deliver multimedia forms of breaking news instantly,” said Quinn in an assembly in Shue Yan University on Tuesday, April 3, 2012.


Quinn believed that developing Mojo is good for journalism. “It can attract more audiences online and hence can bring larger advertising revenues for news agencies,” he said.


However, Quinn mentioned that there are pros and cons of using smart phones for reporting. Smart phones are very useful equipments that contain many tools like camera, audio recorder, radio, calculator, etc. Also, he believed the smart phones are easy to use and compact. (keep cons in same paragraph)


On the other hand, Quinn thought that one of the disadvantages of smart phones is their limited battery life. “Mojo reporters have to bring battery chargers with them all the time,” he said. He also mentioned journalists have to be aware of the charges of transferring data via internet.


Lastly, Quinn reminded journalists that good tools are important. Yet, they (got-have) to have a good “brain” to use the technologies or else their work(s-singular) will be pointless.
