    Extend your story
    The story doesn’t end with your package
    Extra footage (iefull interviews) – gives the viewer a deeper look at the story
    Behind-the-scenes pics/video – the audience wants more of how the story comes together
    Context – fact-sheets, a video/written blog,all add weight to the issues you’re covering

    Audience engagement builds your credibility

    Use Facebook to gauge interest in a story or find contacts
    Conduct web-only events ie Live Chats, twitter interviews etc
    Promote your activity on-air!!
  • 9. Twitter – a journo guide
    200 million users worldwide – but many accounts are inactive
    Hugely hyped – but most people use it poorly
    Used heavily as a professional networking tool – but be aware of the “echo-chamber effect”
    Excellent resource if you know how to filter out the white noise
    It’s a forum for two-way conversations and sharing of information
    Don’t just use it to spruik your stories – DO use it to gain opinion/information
    Use a 3rd party app (Seesmic Web, Tweetdeck) & create lists of people/orgs you trust
    Understand how to search via hashtags & other twitter services – ask Rhiannon for advice!
  • 10. Twitter search tips
  • 11. Facebook – a journos guide
    642 million users and counting – threatening Gmail & Hotmail
    9.75 million Australians on Facebook. We lead the world in time spent on Facebook & other social media sites
    You are now competing with social media and other websites for your audience’s attention – use this as an opportunity instead of a threat.
    Your audience is on Facebook while watching the news – why not use the two as a powerful cross-platform proposition?
  • 12. Facebook – a journos guide
    If you’re on the road – send photos, iPhone video of what you experience
    Your audience loves to see the media at work and get an insight into your ‘glamorous’ lives on TV
    Facebook groups are a great source of contacts, people and case studies – just contact the administrators as ‘spamming’ random people will get you banned
    If you’re running an ongoing story/issue (ie School bullying) – start your own Facebook page to build a community around your issue.
  • 13. Pics & video – best practice
    It’s not about quality – it’s all about speed. Get pics to us fast
    Give an insight to life on the road – the media set-up, how you get the story back etc etc
    Do a little piece to camera on your iPhone – it’s a brilliant extended piece of coverage
    Don’t copy what you’re doing for TV – extend it!
  • 14. Checklist – help us help you
    Tell us where you’re going before you leave the newsroom
    Discuss anything you’d like to crowdsource – people, photos, debate
    Give us a teaser to build interest – a great quote, some dramatic vision to plug your story
    Fact sheets/links/more info – we need this in advance too
    Promote what you’re doing on-air!
