Abstract:Corruption is one of the major deterrents to socioeconomic development in developing counties. The US Department of State is in search of effective ways for fighting corruption with the help of citizens in developing countries. We propose citizen journalism to be an effective tool for fighting corruption by bringing social change in developing countries. This poster presents findings from the secondary research conducted in early 2018 under the directives of the U.S. Embassy in Kenya. In particular, we illustrate the role of Snapchat for responsible citizen journalism for fighting corruption in developing countries. This poster also presents 10 barriers to using social media for citizen journalism in developing countries.
