True/Slant

I came across a piece today on IMR titled The Latest Experiment in Online Journalism. The article talked about a new website called True/Slant that has been receiving a lot of buzz in the journalism world. The website has already been covered in newspapers like The Washington Post and The Wall Street Journal.

True/Slant describes itself as “original content news network tailored to both the entrepreneurial journalist and marketers who want a more effective way to engage with digital audiences.” Basically, it is a place where contributors, consumers and marketers all share an equal voice.

I thought that this was a great example of how social media is opening the gate for open two way communication in all aspects of our lives.
