Engaged journalists know there’s value to good participation in and moderation of online comments. But what does that actually look like? In this 30-minute video chat with Teddy Amenabar of The Washington Post, Elizabeth Dunbar of Minnesota Public Radio, and Andrew Losowsky of The Coral Project, we’ll talk about some benefits of investing in comments. Then we’ll look at specific comment threads and do some live brainstorming about how journalists could/should/might participate in them.
Many engagement jobs include interaction in comments threads — on social media or on our own websites? How do we decide when to join in? What should we say, and what should we allow others to say? What should comment policies address? Join Andrew Losowsky and Lilah Raptopoulos as they discuss it more in depth.
