UPCOMING WEBINAR: Social Media Ethics

Oct 10, 2018

Social media is an important tool for public radio newsrooms to report news and engage with growing audiences. But as the emotional intensity of our country’s political and social issues continues to rise, reporters and station employees find themselves in a difficult place. When is it appropriate to passionately weigh in on Twitter, Facebook or Instagram and when is it not?

The Culture or Journalism team will tackle social media ethics in a webinar on Thursday October 18 at 12:30 p.m. EST.

In this webinar Ithaca College journalism professor Anthony Adornato, a former local TV news reporter and author of Mobile and Social Media Journalism: A Practical Guide, walks you through some of the most innovative ways of engaging audiences on social media. In particular, he discusses how to optimize your social media content through the use of social media graphics and “readable” videos – both of which can be created quickly using a mobile device.

Where do you put commas?

What about abbreviations, is it GA or Ga?

And what about numbers, do you write eleven or 11?

Ack! How are you supposed to know, you're a radio reporter?!?! 

Well, here's where Mercer University's Adam Ragusea can help. Adam held a PRNDI webinar giving basic tips and general guidance on how to move a script from one medium to another.

You can watch Adam's webinar here.

Does this sound familiar? You put your resources behind a great story that you and your staff are proud of. When it finally airs, it sounds great on the radio, and you're feeling swell. But within a few days your audience's attention moves elsewhere.
