Simon Mainwaring: How social media built a global community of citizen journalists with Amra Tareen

I recently had the pleasure of chatting to Amra Tareen, CEO and founder of the world’s largest citizen journalism platform, She is deeply committed to making sure all people have a voice and to shine a spotlight on those areas that can help the lives of others the most.

Amra commands 300,000 citizen journalists in over 160 countries and her site enjoys an amazing 5 million unique visitors a month. As the fastest growing media platform for citizen journalism in the world, is a model of how to engage individuals to contribute content, how to build a global community and how to leverage new technology tools to do meaningful work.

I hope you enjoy the interview and please fire away with any questions
