Crowdsourcing is a great way to gather information, ideas or content from a community. Social media has taken crowdsourcing to a new level.
One of my favorite projects that used crowdsourcing is Chart Jackers. Chart Jackers followed 4 UK Youtubers who had a goal to create a #1 pop single on the UK charts. All the procedes went to charity.
The lyrics, melody, musicians, and singers were all found through crowdsourcing. It’s amazing to see what they were able to accomplish and it is a testament to how the internet and social media continues to change the way we create and communicate. I don’t want to give to much away. Watch the Chart Jackers compilation below.
