Abstract [sv]

Denna studie fokuserar på hur lokalt baserade journalister i Kalmarområdet tar ställning när de använder sociala medier i sitt arbete. Hur medvetna är de när de använder sociala medier, och var drar de gränsen mellan offentlig och privat information? Denna studie är baserad på teorier om det offentliga rummet, journalistisk etik och medborgarjournalistik. Vi har gjort en enkät med journalister i Kalmarområdet som arbetar med press, TV och radio. Resultatet visar att en stor del av journalisterna anser att information från sociala medier är offentligt och att det är legitimerat att använda sig av denna information i det journalistiska arbetet. Studien visar också att trovärdigheten är viktigast när journalister använder information från sociala medier i sitt arbete.

Abstract [en]

This study is focusing on how local journalists in the Kalmar area in Sweden contemplate and take stand when they use social media in their work. With how much caution do they approach social media, and where do they draw the line between private and public information?

This study is based on theories about the public sphere, journalistic ethics and citizen journalism. We did a survey with journalists in the Kalmar area who works with newspaper, television and radio. The result shows that most journalists consider information from social media to be public and that a large amount of journalists think that it is legitimate to use that information in their work. It also shows that reliability is the most important considerations for journalists when they search for and use social media in their work.
