In the light of our recent discussions on the left and new media, here’s an interesting website – it’s called www.allvoices.com. This is what it says about itself:
allvoices is a global community that shares news, videos, images and opinions tied to news events and people. It is the first true people’s media.
It’s a place where individuals from all over the world can share what is happening where they are (location) at a particular point in time. allvoices then brings together multiple voices or points of view via news stories, videos, images and blogs from the Internet, to provide context and build momentum. The platform provides the community with the ability to search and navigate a news event by location and category, to share and to have a discussion around it, to emotionally connect with each other’s perspectives and complete the human story.
allvoices is an open and highly relevant social media site “unedited by humans”, where anyone can report and add their voice from anywhere.
And this is how it’s currently reporting unrest amongst young people as it apparently spreads from Greece to the rest of Europe.
