A MOGN experience at the Great Barrier Reef

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



I recently returned from a half-week trip to one of the Seven Natural Wonders of the World. The Great Barrier Reef is certainly a place that you need to see, and you better do it fast.

Scientists predict that within the next decade, there will be a significant loss of species found at the Great Barrier Reef due to both natural and human impact on the Reef.

I was absolutely blown away by the amount of diversity in the types of fish and coral that I saw. It almost felt as if I was in a museum and was looking at a piece of art.

As I was coming up to the surface at the culmination of my scuba dive, I thought how fascinating it would be for others to see and share my experience. With the Mobile Generated News App, I could post videos that I took underwater and within minutes, my local news station could run a story on the destruction of the Great Barrier Reef. While the subject of the story could be depressing, the footage would be superb.

We want to know other ways that you could imagine using the App! If you have any great ideas, let us know.

CJ Alerts allow you to cover breaking news

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



The CJ Alert feature of the Mobile Generated News App will allow users the ability to cover breaking news as it happens. A local news station can send a CJ Alert out to its subscribers and Citizen Journalists will be able to contribute to the 24/7 news cycle.

Say an animal has escaped from the Santa Barbara Zoo. Univision 38 in Santa Barbara would send a CJ Alert out to all subscribers in the Santa Barbara area and user-generated content could be the fastest and most-reliable source for the station to air. Your content could be the go-to news and would be on air within minutes.

Say someone hit a multi-million dollar jackpot on a slot machine in a casino in Las Vegas. Univision 15 in Las Vegas would send out a CJ Alert to all of the subscribers in the Las Vegas area and your first-hand account of the breaking news could be on air with the push of a button.

MoGN App availible in English and Spanish, French in the near future

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



The MoGN app is available for English as well as Spanish speaking users. Soon, a French version of the app will be available to all users, especially the citizen journalists in certain areas of Canada where French is the most common language.

English is the most common language spoken in the United States, while Spanish is second, and French is fourth. Chinese is third.

The media and citizens truly do make up the “fourth estate,” the body of people that have just as much of a say as the executive, legislative, and judicial branches of the government, in how their nation should be run. This “fourth estate” is essential to a democracy.

All people in the United States and Canada should have the opportunity to communicate and interact with their local news team.

Sunsets are just one way the MoGN App can change the news cycle

Greetings from Mobile Generated News® MoGN!



I have always been fascinated by sunsets. The way in which colors blend in the sky as the day comes to a close always reminds me how beautiful life can be. The Mobile Generated News team is based in Cardiff-by-the-Sea, CA where the sunsets are usually great, but we have been working on ways to make that sunset even better.

A Citizen Journalist could take a picture of a sunset or a video of the waves crashing during a sunset and upload it to the database and that picture could be on a local weather newscast in minutes. We all have our favorite weatherman and now, thanks to the MoGN App, a user can feel like he is in the newsroom with him, minutes before he goes on air.

If there is a train going by while you are watching the sunset, you could take a video of the train and your local news team could use your video in a newscast on transportation or fuel prices.

If you are watching the sunset at your favorite beach side restaurant, take a video of your server bringing you your food and perhaps your local news team will be doing a story about waiting tables or proper restaurant etiquette, and your video could be on-air just like that.
