MASTERING TWITTER  Communicate within the 140-character limit  Search and find Twitter feeds by name, topic, or hashtag (#)  Choose Twitter feeds to follow (curation)  Create Twitter lists (also curation)  Learn the art of the retweet (RT)  Learn the difference between replies and DMs (direct messages)

  7. 7. TWITTER FOR JOURNALISTS Uses of the Twitter account:  Ask for comments and feedback from audience  Follow fellow journalists  Follow sources (monitor what they‟re discussing; discover trends)  Share links to news content  Tweet breaking news updates Which of these are consistent with the account‟s identity?

  14. 14. TUMBLR IN A NUTSHELL Tumblr users are rebloggers: They will spread your content (and your links). Tags are very important: Many Tumblr users subscribe to tags. It‟s not a full-scale blogging platform like WordPress.
  15. 15. BEST USES FOR JOURNALISTS  (re)Broadcast your own content  News organization  Program  Topic (e.g. Singapore)  Subscribe and follow Tumblr blogs to get ideas, see what‟s being reblogged  Use Tumblr as a clip file for ideas  Create your own tags to improve usefulness
  16. 16. “Tumblr is “Tumblr is the 25th most popular site in Singapore based on a combination of average daily visitors and pageviews.” —Alexa Traffic Rank, March 9, 2012

  18. 18. PINTERESTStill in the “inviteonly” phase,Pinterest beatGoogle+, LinkedInand YouTubecombined fortraffic referrals inFebruary 2012.It also beat Twitter.Findings based on aggregated data from more than 200,000 publishers thatreach more than 270 million unique monthly visitors each month.

  26. 26. PINTEREST PROS AND CONS Cons It‟s the hot new thing; it may fizzle out The visual bias is even more dominant than on Tumblr It may be better suited to product advertising: popular categories include home decor, DIY and gifts

  31. 31. COPYRIGHT AND PINTERESTEven though images link back to theoriginal site, this kind of re-use does violatecopyright laws.Pinterest has a form for reporting anycopyright violation.For news organizations, any desire toprosecute copyright violations should beweighed against the value of referral traffic.
  32. 32. “I would say Pinterest is more of an„evergreen‟ social network than someof the others. Once you pinsomething, it‟s there for a long time. Ifind that, as a journalist, I pin thingsthere that will still be interestingdays or weeks later. This isn‟tnecessarily true of Twitter orFacebook, that are more in themoment.” —Rubina Madan Fillion, graphics editor, The Wall Street Journal
  33. 33. PINTEREST TIP  People can follow you (your profile)  Or they can choose to follow only one of your “pinboards” …  Or just the specific pinboards they like (instead of users + all of their pinboards) (You can do the same)
