News is dictated by a select few and those few are the ones who control what trends in the media instead of the ordinary person. News content is shaped by the media houses and structural systems hence a lot of backyard events and innovations are not being covered and there are very few stories about the ordinary person.
Our mainstream media personnel are also faced with time and financial constraints that hinder them from covering all aspects and areas as they are also not Omni-present, however Tipstars are anyone, everyone and basically everywhere. Therefore they can cover those areas and issues for the mainstream media.
Tipster is a news sharing platform that is democratizing the news making business by placing the power of the media into the hands of ordinary people which we call Tipstars. Tipster is basically empowering anyone with a smartphone to be an amateur journalist.
Tipster provides a secure channel for ordinary people to upload exclusive news content (images, videos and reports) which is then distributed/sold to content consumers and publishers (probloggers, Media Houses, TV channels etc) depending on the type of content.
