Training journalists on how to use social media


Training journalists on how to use social media is rapidly becoming an essential element at 'J-Schools' in the USA, UK and many other countries. But there are many perils, as well as pluses, in the public use of what many still think of as an essentially peer-group method of communication.

This is me talking to Mary Rogus of the E.W. Scripps School of Journalism at Ohio University, on how to utilise social media into journalism, without tears! We caught up during a short break at the Broadcast Education Association's annual Convention and Media Festival in Las Vegas, mid-April 2015.

Still amazing really in this day and age that young journalist would need to be taught the importance of Social media to promote themselves
