With the rapid development of the Internet, more channels have appeared for news releases these past years. Of these these channels, Chan Suk Mei, Chief Inspector of News and Public Affairs of Commercial Radio, said that Weibo has brought many changes to journalism.


Chan attended a seminar held by the Department of Journalism and Communications of Hong Kong Shue Yan University and the Department of Communications of the University of Macau. At the seminar, she said that she had stuck to Weibo as it provides news rapidly, continuously ,and with personal characteristics, which changes the definition of reporterting in journalism.


She compared Weibo with different forms of news reporting. She said that she could receive the immediate news through Weibo quickly after any incident happened. However, news on television and radio are reported after several hours. News on printed media is released the next day. She said that with the use of Weibo, she can get the basic information immediately when some others report it actively, while other forms of media are not able to release news with such speed.


Apart from that, she said that some of the news released in Weibo is full of character. She took the incident of the Occupy Wall Street movement as an example. She said that there is a Chinese student studying in America who took lots of photo of the movement and uploaded them onto Weibo. She said that those posts made by him were full of personality as he had added his views on the content through Weibo. The photos taken by him are focused on different kinds of participators rather than simply on people protesting overall, and they are thus more able to show the details of the movement like the demands and anticipations of participators. The information released by him has no effect on the quality of the news, but does provide news with more personality.


Apart from that, Weibo provides news continuously. Unlike other forms of media, she said, Weibo allows people to follow certain news over a long period of time. For example, there is a person who keeps on releasing the political situation of Libya through Weibo. By following his posts, people are able to know the latest political status of Libya. She added that the number of followers is similar to the circulation of newspapers, which means a personal Weibo account is acting like a news agency.


She said that with these characteristics of Weibo, it is able to have a more powerful influence than traditional news media. She also added that Weibo gives a chance for the general public to release news regarding the situation around them, and that reporting is not just limited only to people working in journalism, but, rather, is available to everyone who is willing to do so.

[Occupy Wall Street is a movement, not an incident. It is not a one time event, but rather a continuous agenda involving many people for a prolonged period of time. The Occupy Wall Street movement is still active, and picking up steam.]

[Fantastic article. Truly well done. Great explanations, great focus, great use of transition words. Keep up the good work.]
