The need for a Public Access Vlogging option, the BuddyPress Difference.

A vlog is a website that contains posts with video typically organized in reverse chronological order. Blogging and Vlogging have become a popular past time of many people. Technorati currently states it is tracking over 112.8 million blogs. When the term was first introduced in 1999, web blogs were mostly online journals. Today blogs are used for everything from journaling, to promoting businesses and local news content. With the emergence of this new form of media as an effective way of building idea recognition, there is a rising need to steward blogging to all demographics, ethnic groups, and economic levels. AccessLocal.TV and the Neighborhood News program begin to meet this need, while extending to its members the opportunity to benefit from Local Access Television and Radio resources and audiences.

While blogging gives Internet users a way to quickly publish their ideas, social media gives them a way to communicate with each other. Social media website FaceBook boasts that it has reached over 300 million members. While the level of privacy provided by social media websites is often debated, there is no question as to popularity or the ability of a social network to create a lot of exposure for its users ideas. Thanks to BuddyPress, a plugin for WordPress MU, AccessLocal.TV is also a social media community allowing its members to connect with each other, comment on each others work, as well as leave each other public and private messages.

So after months of work and a lot of input from the community, Access Sacramento submitted the proposal for the South Sacramento County Neighborhood News program to the James T. Knight Foundation’s Knight News Challenge Grant. The program is to focus on providing journalism tools and video hosting to low income areas in South Sacramento, and to anyone in Sacramento and beyond who wants to take an active role in producing content.
