Web Voyeurism Adds That Human Element To News Stories
from the from-the-comfort-of-your-own-home dept
If you've noticed an increasing trend in news stories recently to discuss additional information about someone as found on their online blog or social networking profile, you're not alone. It seems that it's not just the police who will now look for additional evidence that you've posted online -- but the press is starting to use any additional info they can find about you online to breathe more oxygen into an otherwise dull news story. While some think it adds a "human element" to some of the drama, others find it a bit voyeuristic. They're probably both right.
