Social media and the digital newsroom

NUJ INDEPENDENT Broadcasting and New Media Branch presents "Social Media and the Digital Newsroom: Closing the Gap".

This examines the increasing overlap between user-generated content, blogging, citizen journalism, new media marketing and more traditional news practices. It's for anyone (both NUJ members and non-members) who works with online content for a living, be it within a tech start-up, multimedia newsroom, blogging or social media capacity.

The guest speaker will be Lisette Johnston, senior multimedia journalist at BBC World News, with 13 years of experience working across social, print, mobile video and television platforms. She recently won a prize for her academic research on social media and TV coverage of the Syria conflict.

It's on Tuesday 23 February at LAUNCH22, 31A Corsham Street, London N1 6DR (near Old Street station) and kick-off is at 18:30. It's free, with drink and nibbles provided. To register go to
