Facebook and Journalists

Wednesday, April 13, 2011

Facebook has launched its new Journalists on Facebook site. The site currently has 40,824 people who have selected its like button.

Only a week after the journalist program on Facebook was launched more than 35,000 people have liked the page.

Journalists around the world have shown interest in attending the social journalism events hosted by the Facebook page.

The events will be live-streamed for the journalists that cannot make it in person. You must RSVP and register on the Facebook page (www.facebook.com/journalists). In order to received the live stream.

The events consist of networking receptions, social journalism best practices, social journalism panel, and a Q&A.

Twitter and Quora are main sites for journalists to find their stories but Facebook wants a piece of the action. Facebook is taking a different approach and using their page as a way for journalists to connect on their own page as well as providing an outlet for stories.

This site will be very beneficial for Facebook. Especially since Twitter has been a very big promotion of journalism, because it not only does this but it is a social media site. I will have to like this page on Facebook, and see which journalism social media site I like better. What do you suggest?
