Crowdsourcing And User-Generated Content: It refers to the information, photographs, videos, audios that is being provided to the news organization by the member of the public.

This information gives a clearer idea about the reality because it is being submitted by those who have actually faced or attended the event/situation that is being covered.

Visual Journalism: Now a days videos are replacing text content for the information to the people. It helps to engage viewer.
