Storytelling helps journalists and companies on getting involved with their audience, but to reconquer the trust they need to move forward from top-down relationships (publishing -> reading) and to look for new ways of collaboration.

Building communities based on the sharing and the creation of value, also thanks to the crowdsourcing, seems to be the missing link that can help rebuild readers’ trust.
Authentic relations, collaboration as mutual exchange of knowledge and experiences and the recovery of the individual's values are then the foundation to start to innovate journalism and communication.
