February 26, 2007 12:00 by

The internet continues to grow as a major battleground in the war for public opinion. Citizen media blogs, photo and video sites have emerged as alternative information sources to the mainstream media and a powerful tool to spread messages and even support for extremism and terror.

Our recent expose of Reuters’ 2007 Calendar Gaffe and the subsequent reaction from Reuters’ editor-in-chief illustrates the power of a rapid online response. Thousands of you helped to move the issue to the front pages of web search engines such as Google and Yahoo. In turn, this created a critical mass as more people were exposed to the story and were encouraged to take action.

You can join our front line team of Media Responders, by downloading our very latest ‘action alert’ tool – the 24HR Megaphone.
