Our question include:

  1. How do media social channels move beyond broadcast mode?
  2. What are the objectives of media outlets using social – geting traffic, interaction with articles, or something else?
  3. How much control do you put around journalists to discuss their stories on social? Or do you want a top-down approach, sharing from your entity.
  4. In your organization, there’s probably some old school journalists who question social – how do you get them on board? Or is it even worth the time?
  5. How do you optimize the delivery process of your content (time, language, context, etc)?
