Abstract [en]

News has always been influenced by the utilization of technological innovations inside newsrooms. During the past decade news-making has experienced significant changes, including the convergence of social media, citizen journalism, niche journalism, and data journalism in news production.

In Egypt’s post 20 11 era, journalism function is expected to be more than a source for news, but a bridge between events on the streets and the Internet. They needed to be seen as a body to enhance interaction among various groups and actors in order to influence public opinion and mobilize support. Journalists are needed to create a form of Agenda cutting on government mainstream media creating an alternative form of media including news from margins to the mainstream news media became available in networked information societies.

In democratizing societies such as Egypt, the news media need to be active in the network society seeing different publics as creators, (re)actors, (re)makers and redistributors of news. Further,  journalists need to be bridge of information from and among different political activists/networks and their audience(s) providing citizens with vibrant, argumentative and often the most informative commentary available. This study aims at investigating the role played by ICTs in news production.
