The Tech > Media > Engagement journalism > News to action - (8)

Tools and platforms that connect news audiences to constructive actions they can take based on a story. These projects sometimes struggle to gain traction in newsrooms due to their editorial concerns about objectivity, or what some observers have noted as a bias toward reporting on problems rather than solutions.


We believe that everyone has a story and can contribute to the news narrative. Tipster is a news sharing platform that is democratizing the news making business by placing the power of the media into the hands of ordinary people whom we call Tipstars. Tipster is basically empowering anyone with a smartphone to be an amateur journalist. Tipster provides a secure channel for ordinary people to upload exclusive news content (images, videos and reports) which is then distributed/sold to content consumers and publishers (probloggers, Media Houses, TV channels etc) depending on the type of content.
