CNN announced the nominations for its first awards programme to honour citizen reporters and participatory journalists, the iReport Awards, today. CNN’s iReport Awards, to be held in early March, will be given to CNN iReporters who have produced “the best examples of participatory journalism in 2010.”
In 2010 over 25 billion Tweets were sent and about 9 billion emails were exchanged. We watch 700 billion videos on Youtube, that is about 13 million hours or the equivalent of 1,500 years of continuous viewing (We hope you like piano playing cats). At year’s end it is natural to look back, to review the dying year and take stock of what has happened. This is what the world’s media has been doing this week, so join us on The Sociable’s review of the reviews of 2010.

As the #studentmarch in Dublin today turned violent, news reports from citizen journalists at the protest came flooding in on Twitter. This is one of those occasions that Twitter, as a live blogging tool, becomes extremely useful.
