Facebook for Journalists

Posted: March 22, 2011 by nmiqueli in Uncategorized

It was only a matter of time until newspapers and sites decided to move onto facebook. A community news site in Washington D.C. known as The Rockville Central, is beginning this movement. Starting March 1, the site will move all its operations and news coverage to its Facebook Page. This move highlights Facebook’s growing role as a platform for journalists to use for social storytelling and reporting. Practically everyone has a Facebook now so why wouldn’t newspapers convert? This change is going to help the circulation of the newspaper and the fan base is going to grow rapidly. It’s so much easier to just sign onto facebook and have your news conveniently waiting for you upon clicking Login. I think that this trend is going to be extremely popular, and soon enough Facebook will be a domain for our current events.
