The "ethical" citizen journalist generates support from others in the cause based on proven methods that gain the attention of policymakers; the powers-that-be.By being ethical, practitioners are able to ensure…See More

Hi Darren,

 

Welcome to the FrontlineSMS forum! Thanks for posting up the citizen media video sample. Is this video connected to FrontlineSMS use? If so it would be helpful if you could explain this in accompanying text? It is always interesting for us to find out how FrontlineSMS is being used in practice!

 

It is great to hear that you are interested in using FrontlineSMS in DRC for a citizen media project, and I'm glad you've had the chance to chat to Ken about this. Please feel free to ask questions here on the forum and do keep us updated on how your work progresses. You may also be interested in joining the 'Media' group here on the forum, too.

 

Look forward to learning more about your work.

 

All the Best,

Florence
