Abstract [en]

Although participatory journalism involves publishing content created by users, editors shape the conditions under which user generated content is produced; the context of publication and the perceived prominence of the content. In this paper, three online news media in Sweden are analysed comparatively: Sourze – the first Swedish participatory newspaper; Newsmill – a social media focusing on news and debate; and DN – the online version of the Dagens Nyheter. The question is how participation is affected by editorial influence.Findings suggest that participatory arenas are constrained by the logic of their context of production. People from different categories in society participate on different terms. Furthermore, editors influence the agenda by suggesting topics, and by rewarding articles that follow their suggestions. This challenges assumptions about freedom from constraints related to traditional mass media, such as agenda setting, gate-keeping and media logic.
