Proficiency in social media is increasingly a required skill in the portfolio of journalists across “traditional” newspapers and broadcasting, just as much as in new media.
Social media are not a substitute for good newsgathering, research or writing skills, but it is important that once a journalist has a social media profile, s/he is able to use it proficiently and confidently as part of their day-to-day work.
This course will also help you to navigate some of the copyright and legal issues for journalists working with social media.
What you should bring with you: A laptop computer or smart phone if you regularly use either device as part or your daily organising work, however, NUJ Training computers will be available.
Qualifications: Attendees on the course do not have to have attended the Introductory course, but should have some prior knowledge of social media and will be expected to have active Twitter and Facebook accounts.
This half day course costs £45 for NUJ members and £60 for non-members and this includes all materials and tea/coffee.
