There’s no question that social media has forever changed the way news organizations connect with their audiences. But has that change helped or harmed news organizations? And what’s in it for social media companies to get involved with news organizations, such as through Facebook’s Instant Articles or Snapchat Discover? With their first Social Media Summit, the Engaging News Project and the UT School of Journalism hope to explore these issues, as well as discuss how news organizations used social media during this year’s unprecedented presidential election. Speakers will share their experiences and takeaways from using social media to cover the election, while attendees will come away with new ideas on how to use social media in their newsrooms. 

This is a free event, but you must register to attend.
