Social and Digital Newsgathering Working Group

Join AP's Fergus Bell (@fergb) and Eric Carvin (@EricCarvin) for the first meeting of a new ONA working group focused on the use of social media to gather the news and the way we handle content gathered over digital platforms. Anyone who deals with social newsgathering, citizen journalism and user-generated content is welcome to join the group, which aims to uncover opportunities and solve problems related to this increasingly valuable news industry tool.

At this gathering, you're invited to help determine the structure and priorities of the group — and, hopefully, to help come up with a snappier name.
