Freedom on the Net 2017
20.11.2017: Freedom House
Governments around the world have dramatically increased their efforts to manipulate information on social media over the past year. Online content manipulation contributed to a seventh consecutive year of overall decline in internet freedom, along with a rise in disruptions to mobile internet service and increases in physical and technical attacks on human rights defenders and independent media.

Analysis of comments on portals and recommendation on better communications
12.01.2011: Dusan Babic
What does it look like when citizens, ordinary people, with different views, different intentions, take the pen in their own hands; in the absence of any kind of restrictions, does at least minimal culture of dialog exist in public space; what do people write about and can information published that way (which has not gone through journalistic and editorial controls) influence public opinion? Analysis of five BiH portals and two portals from Serbia and two from Croatia was based on a sample of controversial socio-political issues, i.e. issues on which political or ethnic consent is lacking, published on the home pages of the analyzed portals in a set monitoring timeframe (7 days each in June, July and August 2010). We carefully monitored readers’ comments on these articles.

The problems arise when the information is in another country, as local Freedom of Expression laws apply and the country has its own standards when it comes to obscene, indecent, political, and religious and under-ground material. Governments can attempt to regulate what is produced in their own country but it would be impossible to regulate material from abroad. What is the point in removing all domestic reference to something certain country find unsuitable when it is possible to access material from other parts of the world. It is also possible for citizens to produce material and store it in an overseas domain further complicating the issue.

Some research projects carried out last year at BiH level provide devastatingly low data on internet use. With a population of approximately four million, only some 100,000 are regular or occasional users.
New Media -> Serbia and Montenegro
09.06.2004: Zoran Stanojevic
In Serbia and Montenegro, especially after the fall of the Milosevic regime, there is no suffocation of media freedom that would be compensated for on the internet. What is more, the process is almost reversed. The media in Serbia is ready to publicize even what can normally be found solely on the net, at suspiciously registered addresses.

In this information age anyone can perform the role of a journalist. The World Wide Web allows anyone, anywhere, and timely to post piece of information, comments, opinions, pictures, etc., that can be viewed almost instantaneously around the globe. But it might be also a hate inspiring language onlined. If so, we have to care who gets called a journalist? And the key to that issue is ethics.

Contemporary journalism incorporates increasingly high levels of technical work, although the professional part remains principal. Modern time journalist must be computer literate, and skilled operator of supporting electronic devices (like mini discs and other sound-recording appliances, mobile and satellite telephones), video and photo cameras. Even the possibility to establish prompt communication with newsroom (to forward the information) has become a key moment in present-day media competition.
New Media -> Moldova
04.06.2003: Artur Corghencea
Moldovan Internet has a short history, as anything labeled 'Made in Moldova'. Even shorter. This seems to be the fate of Moldovans - anything related to advanced technology comes to this small country when it is already obsolete, or at least widely known in the West.
New Media -> Serbia
28.04.2003: Zoran Stanojevic
An article taken from a newspaper must take into account printing technology, which means that it cannot be transformed, without major editorial changes, into a form acceptable, for example, for the Internet. This would entail significant shortening of the article, emphasizing key words, breaking it up into sections connected with hyperlinks. Therefore, this is a task for which there is usually not enough time or people or resources. The result is that what we see on the net and what we call online journalism is actually only a projection of the old media, with the only contribution being a technological one.
New Media -> Macedonia
25.03.2003: Katerina Spasovska
Macedonian sites display a diversity and growth of contents, but they also display certain problems that characterize the beginning of use of the Internet as a medium. Although Macedonia stepped up its presence on the Web over the past couple of years, it takes quite some effort to find the freshest data. In the article we provide an overview of some of Macedonia's key sites and the contents they offer.
