Bruns (2005 Bruns, Axel. 2005. Gatewatching: Collaborative Online News Production: Collaborative Online News Production. New York: Peter Lang Publishing Inc. [Google Scholar] ) has highlighted the publishing power of individuals in contrast to journalism. He identified a changing role of journalism—a shift from controlling the construction of social reality to curating it by re-publishing content through journalistic platforms after it was already visible on the Web. This means that journalists act as “gatewatchers” instead of gatekeepers. cites Centralized and Decentralized Gatekeeping in an Open Online Collective on 6/5/2019, 9:44:23 PM
