There has been a massive development with news gathering in journalism and is actually changing the way that we not only collect information but also present it as journalists.
In recent years we collect news stories and information in general a lot more from our mobiles rather than through newspapers or magazines. This makes it an ever growing strategy for journalists and news reporters alike as well as making it faster to get the updates as the story progresses with each passing day.
Gathering news on your mobiles can be a much more efficient way as you can easily record a conversation with whoever you are conducting an interview with so that you do not miss bits. Which is likely to happen more without a mobile or recording device.
However, there is a danger with mobile news gathering as to whether the information you are gathering is real rather than fake news. As well as whether it is coming from a trusted news source as this is considered second hand information, which is not always trustworthy.
