  • Social Media for Journalists Rachel Mourao, M.A. rachelmourao@gmail.com
  • What do you think of social media? • …it does not matter
  • Twitter for journalists Decisions before you start a) Do you need a personal or a professional account? Or both? https://twitter.com/acarvin
  • More decisions Does your paper need its own account? If no, do you want your staff to link their personal accounts to the publication? If yes, brand accounts need personality. https://twitter.com/thedailytexan Do not forget to give credit to your staff members by mentioning them.
  • Resources for journalists Storify and Storyful https://storify.com/ Tweetdeck https://web.tweetdeck.com/
  • Tips Use hashtags and crowdsourcing (with caution): sending pictures, using hashtags, interacting with followers, asking for their instagram pictures, drive the conversation. Try to include links When promoting a story, you can link to it several times as long as you change the wording. Marcus was wrong: the default egg avatar is sadder than an abandoned blog

  • Facebook for Journalists Facebook + Journalists: https://www.facebook.com/journalists This Page, run by Facebook, provides resources for using Facebook as a journalist and is also a community for journalists on the platform. Facebook + Media: https://www.facebook.com/fbmedia Created by Facebook, this page has tips on best practices and tools to help you drive referral traffic, increase engagement, etc.
  • Follow and Pages Pages Pages are designed to facilitate multiple administrators. Aggregating fans to a single Page helps cross-promote the work of all of a news outlet’s reporters and build a fan community. Follow Different than your personal account (where you add friends), Facebook allows you to “follow” people. https://www.facebook.com/floridaalligator https://www.facebook.com/dailytexan
