This is a news story from the participatory journalism website “GlobalVoices”, it mainly describes Mark Zackerberg was jogging in Beijing’s Tiananmen Square, which has drawn on controversial comments online. Notably this article focuses on people’s criticism in a sarcastic tone, readers can share this article via various social media network.
Overall, the article is consist of several chunk of text with white space, and the number of words in each paragraph is not overmuch which gives the readers a concise impression on the article. In addition, the author employs meme images properly and quotes cyber citizen’s comments along with hyperlink letting readers further explore the story.
However, there are a few issues that can be improved as far as I am concerned. Firstly, the author begun with the opening paragraph without a brief introduction indicating the main points of the story, readers may find themselves confused when they still don’t have a clue about the idea of story after they have read the first section. Moreover, the author did not place keyword tags which may lead to readers’ difficulty in searching and classifying the article, I think a few tags can be included such as Beijing, Mark Zuckerberg, smog, jogging, to name a few.
