Social Media Week: Twitter, the Butterfly Effect and the Future of Journalism
Monday, February 13, 2012 from 6:00 PM to 9:00 PM (GMT)
THE CHANGING FACE OF MEDIA
Whether it's the exposing of super injunctions, middle eastern revolutions or the occupy movement social media is having an ever more significant impact on our society and people's desire for change. In this 2 hour session, we explore how twitter is changing the news industry, how journalists use social media to connect to the story and how collaborative reporting is leading to activism and change.
David Carr of the New York Times recently said 'The media is not the message, the messages are the media". We'll talk about what this means for the industry. We'll discuss the new economics and business models around online news publishing and how social media impacts these. Join us for an enlightening, interactive debate with a mixture of journalists and social media fanatics around the theme of managing and monetizing collaborative journalism. We'll be following the open and interactive Mashup format. There will be some very short talks to introduce the subject and the panel, then we'll be straight into a discussion about the future of news.
