Anyone who payed attention to the recent terrorism in India might have noticed how CNN actually used pages written by bloggers to help give people a better idea what is going on. A blogger’s photos also uploaded in Flickr also helped show the general audience what was actually going on.
Thanks to blogging we can actually get personal accounts of world events as they happen. Thanks to those who take pictures of the incidents we can see personal photos of the events that unfold.
Thanks to bloggers who personally report such crisis situations as which recently happened in India, we have more sources than just traditional media like CNN from which to gather information. The power is now in the hands of the bloggers and they now have a medium from which they can get their message across.
