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.


Live blogging/live tweeting assignment

The assignment is here. Remember to email me at least 24 hours ahead of your event so I can think about whether the event is good enough for this assignment.

The assignment must be completed in this time frame: Thursday, March 19, to Monday, April 6 (inclusive).

Live-tweeting assignment

The live-tweeting assignment is detailed in a Google doc.

Each student must complete a live-tweeting assignment between Thursday, Oct. 30, and Monday, Nov. 17. You choose an activity or event in that timeframe.

Email me IN ADVANCE for approval: provide the date, time, and a description of the activity or event. Please READ the assignment thoroughly before emailing an event request to me.
