CNN iReport: 1,000,000+ iReporters Around the Globe

CNN iReport, the network’s global participatory news community announces a major milestone – the platform has reached more than one million registered contributors.

The news comes on the heels of a complete overhaul of the iReport site last November, the launch of Open Story, a storytelling tool that allows the community to participate in the news in real time and the release of a custom built app for Android.

iReport continues to set the standard in citizen journalism and has further plans to grow the platform in 2012. Included in those plans will be new tools and features designed to carry iReport into all the places where people are telling stories, and then connect them back to CNN and the wider web.
