Citizen media is community voice where the news is community news. It is a bottom-up approach, which is open source, and every citizen can contribute to it as a collaborative way. In citizens, ordinary citizens are reporters, photographers, cameraperson and editors to their news. A good example of citizen’s media is such as blogs, vlogs, podcating and do-it-yourself printing media. This is where the citizen’s media differs itself from the mass media which is top-down mainstream media.

Contrarily, mass media is merely profit oriented corporate media that does not care the basic public interest like media access and right to know. In citizens media there is no centrally controlled then distributed media, it is a media that generated by people to the people for the people. Overall, it is a complete civic involvement whether is politics, financial, education, employment and media itself.
