In this workshop, participants will learn how to set up systems that allow you to monitor social media effectively so you will be the first to find out when news breaks. Learn how to find eyewitnesses quickly and how to work with the images and videos that they post. Do you have adequate Twitter lists set up? How is your Tweetdeck optimized? Are you making the most of Facebook? Are you confident about finding geo-located content? Which tools do you have bookmarked on your desktop? Learn from First Draft’s Fergus Bell and Mandy Jenkins, who will share top tips for discovering some of the most powerful social content to emerge from the biggest news stories.
Organised in association with the First Draft News Coalition.
