Digital journalism in Pakistan

Pakistani journalists and bloggers gathered for a series of panels on emerging forms of journalism.

The panelists discussed the Pakistani media’s effort to converge with digital journalism, as well as citizen and  data journalism, and their impact on global media.

While citizen journalism has been popular in Pakistan, audiences and media producers have been slower to adopt digital media.
Journalist Talat Hussain said that language barriers and audiences that are not tech savvy are problems for the growth of digital journalism in the country.
On the other hand, blogger Faisal  said that citizen journalism has gathered momentum over the past two years. Journalist Yusra Askari suggested that citizen journalism and mainstream reporting could go hand in hand.
