Going live and being authentic

Now that I’ve caught up on reading your weekly journals, I have three posts to recommend.

Abby wrote about live video on YouTube as well as Facebook, and she embedded some excellent examples. Also, tips.

Sara found some good advice for journalists using Facebook, although one resource has been discontinued (the FB Newswire Page).

Kat bought a cool add-on device that makes her iPhone video footage smoother and more professional looking. She wrote about using it at a large event.
