Whether it’s the exposing of super injunctions, middle eastern revolutions or the occupy movement, social media is having an ever more significant impact on our society and people’s desire for change. In this session, we will explore how twitter is changing the news industry, how journalists use social media to connect to the story and how collaborative reporting is leading to activism and change.

David Carr of the New York Times recently said ‘The media is not the message, the messages are the media”. We’ll talk about what this means for the industry. We’ll discuss the new economics and business models around online news publishing and how social media impacts these. Join us for an enlightening, interactive debate with a mixture of journalists and social media fanatics around the theme of managing and monetizing collaborative journalism.
