CrowdVoice is a user-powered platform tracking voices of protest around the world. Crowdsourcing data affords everyday people to report and access a wide range of news. These reports are chosen and approved by a community that influences the floating of “hot” reports to the top. The result? A unique mash-up of crowdsourcing and citizen journalism. Imagine a news-focused, visual Wikipedia.
Pooling eyewitness reports, videos, images, and blogs allows citizen journalists to spread the word on current social justice movements worldwide. In a world of sound bytes, CrowdVoice works to provide first-hand reports, occasionally coupled with the top mainstream media coverage. By doing this, CrowdVoice amplifies the voices of the world’s agents of change.
CrowdVoice is the go-to resource for anyone wanting to track global movements in real time. Instead of checking a range of news, video and social networking sites for updates on issues that matter to you, find it all in one place! Help track what matters to you by adding information and approving what others have already submitted.
After starting out as an experimental, self-funded initiative, CrowdVoice currently draws support from the Omidyar Network and the Shuttleworth Foundation.
