What will I learn?

Understand how to develop social media credibility standards and practices in your organization. Learn from the research, lessons and experiences of three news organizations that tackled and studied an aspect of social media credibility. They surveyed their readers, hosted community conversations, built models and applied the findings to their news organizations.

Editors in this series will discuss:

  • What newsrooms need to know about rights and responsibilities of using social media with Bill Church, editor of the Statesman Journal.
  • How newsrooms can extend their online credibility to social media platforms with Addy Hatch, city editor for the Spokesman-Review.
  • Strategies for assessing Tweet credibility of government institutions, and how to establish newsrooms standards for when to verify, report, or correct information with Suki Dardarian, managing editor of the Seattle Times.

This Webinar is part of the 2012 Social Media Credibility Series, developed in partnership with Associated Press Media Editors (APME). The Webinars are the outcomes of projects by three newsrooms as part of APME's Social Media Credibility Project and are funded by grants from the Ethics and Excellence in Journalism Foundation and APME Foundation.
