The journalist's social media handbook
Social media has changed how we communicate with each other over the Internet and how journalists are able to tell stories. For teenagers, the most active users of social media, their primary use for social media is to address their personal needs and audiences. The thing that teens don't know what to do with social media is how to tell stories on each of the platforms that pull readers into a narrative about topics in today's world. Since many Americans today get their news from social media, it is important to teach student journalists and their advisers how social media can be used to build audiences, create a dialect and tell stories across multiple digital platforms.
