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-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.
