As you are probably well aware, your smartphone is a pretty powerful tool. With all of the capabilities of a computer, TV, digital camera and high definition video camera, smartphones give you much of the same power as an entire news van filled with reporters, technicians and equipment. This relatively recent development has given rise to a new kind of journalism called mobile journalism, or MoJo for short.
Mobile journalism can best be defined as journalism that can be done from start to finish on a mobile device, often by a single individual. A mobile journalist can tell a story from beginning to end, handling every step along the way - filming, photographing, writing, editing, broadcasting, publishing - completely independently. The word “mobile” thus refers both to the use of mobile phones, and to the journalists newfound ability to be mobile and autonomous.
