social media and journalism
On 16 July 2015 we attended news:rewired, a one-day conference organised by journalism.co.uk in London. We had the opportunity to present REVEAL and participate in a panel discussion that dealt with sourcing stories on social media. Obviously, verification of eyewitness material played a big role.
On 31 March 2015, the next News Impact Summit will take place in Hamburg, Germany. REVEAL is pleased and proud to partner with organisers Google and the European Journalism Centre for this exciting event that brings together a wide set of verification experts.
As part of the journalistic user requirements gathering in REVEAL, we conducted 24 interviews with journalists, mostly throughout 2014. Some of the findings and insights into dealing with user-generated content have now been published in the paper “Emerging Journalistic Verification Practices Concerning Social Media”. 50 users can download the paper for free.
