Tagging photos in journalism

Mark Luckie brings a new idea to the world of social media journalism with the idea of tagging photos in a crowd with this post. This is an interesting concept because it invites people to tag themselves in photos, emphasizing the connection between the media source and the community to which it reports. This adds a whole new level to photojournalism, where people can actually identify with the photo, and thus identify with the story and the issue.
