Using real-time social media to re-engage ‘audiences’
Media140 is hosting an event at the International Journalism Festival in Perugia on the 23rd April 2010, exploring the impact of real-time social media on journalism and broadcasting. Key themes will be: how will journalism respond to the changing demands of audiences? What are the changing roles of journalists: filtering, curation and verification of sources? What are the practical skills and tools which will form the foundation for journalism in the future?
The event will include panels, keynotes and case studies designed to provoke debate, whilst practical sessions will provide a hands-on approach.
Watch it live from Perugia from 10am on the 23rd April.
