Belarusian Online Journalism: Citizens' Generated Content And Web 2.0:

The use of the Internet as a news source has increased in Belarus during the 
recent years. Meanwhile, in spite of the new possibilities opened up by 
online tools and technologies, Belarusian online media seem to have based 
their strategies on traditional journalism techniques. A survey of 
Belarusian mass media online conducted by e-belarus.ORG in 2006 revealed 
that the number and quality of Belarusian media online initiatives showed 
them to be in the period of infancy. The overwhelming majority of them fell 
within the category of the news sites with very limited editorial news and 
some form of participatory communication.
