Open source information can be divided into six categories:

  • Media: print newspapers, magazines, radio, and television from across and between countries
  • Internet: online publications, blogs, discussion groups, citizen media (i.e. – cell phone videos, and user created content), YouTube, and other social media websites (i.e. – Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, etc.). This source also outpaces a variety of other sources due to its timeliness and ease of access
  • Public Government Data: public government reports, budgets, hearings, telephone directories, press conferences, websites, and speeches. Although this information comes from official sources they are typically publicly accessible
