Why Would Someone Come to Your Event?
Before hosting an event, ask what your community will get out of it. This chat will focus on how to design an event with your potential participants in mind with hosts Tiney Ricciardi of The Dallas Morning News, and Kristin Walters of Illinois Newsroom
Strategies for Facebook Groups
As a news organization, when should you consider creating a Facebook group, and what could the focus of the group be? Once you have one, how do you recruit and admit members? How (and how much) should you moderate conversation? And how will you measure the success of your efforts? Join Lauren Katz of Vox, Penny Riordan of GateHouse Media, and Hannah Wise of Dallas Morning News to find out.
Reddit for Journalists
Let’s talk about the when, the why and the how of using Reddit as part of our journalism. Bring your questions and experiences, and prepare to be guided by Bobby Blanchard of The Texas Tribune, Dominick DiFurio of The Dallas Morning News, and Gene Park – Embedded of the Washington Post (fresh off a session on this at ONA last month).
We chatted with Angilee Shah and Hannah Wise about Facebook groups. How can journalists use Facebook groups to connect with their communities? When’s the right time? How should people be invited? How do conversations get moderated? What are the success metrics?
