Open Data in Journalism

The access to the open data in a country is becoming a crucial factor for the journalism and the social media is a huge source for data.

For example, the data from some social website should provide their data to the journalism or even normal user as they have the right to know it.

In the finest developed a new world everything is becoming clear in front of people.  People are extremely wanted to have the information that they should have. For example, they don’t have the concept about the message on Facebook, how the website keeps their security, how many messages were sent every year, it is interesting to know in order to track the development of Internet. This can also be useful to the students who study marketing or computer science. For example, in China, Sina Weibo had given its report to the public every year about the utilisation of the blog. Therefore, we are able to get the access to the information of how the internet is widely used what for what reason people are using it. I do think it’s a healthy way to publish this data. By doing this, the journalists are also able to have the idea about where and how they could arrange the news. Also, they can have the idea about the occupations and the age of people who get access to a media, and them news videos can be better performed by customers. Therefore, the open data in journalism is really important and those data should be publicised.
