Much is made about how social media has changed newsrooms, and I’m one of those people who talks a lot about it.
But for all of that talk, there comes a point where you need to decide what action to take, if any.
Newsrooms today are bombarded with lists of best practice, how-to’s and draconian Do This Or You Will Perish blogs and articles.
Do you go with the herd, or do you hold your own and keep moving forward the best way you know how?
I’d really like to hear from some of our readers who are “on the ground” as a part of, or observing, their newsroom’s transformation and/or adoption of social media and online communities.
Not everyone is going to have an easy time of it, but there is certainly opportunity to learn from each other’s experiences.
If you have something to share, please chime in with a comment below about the horror stories, or the tales of greatness at the news organization you work at.
