Sree Sreenivasan, my dean of student affairs and professor of digital media at the Columbia School of Journalism, organized some great guests for a webcast today on how journalists can use Facebook. In fact, the Journalism School is teaching how to use Facebook as a tool for journalists, among other social media. The panel included:
- Arik Hesseldahl, senior technology writer at Businessweek.
- Brandee Barker, director of communications at Facebook (Product/Platform)
- Barry Schnitt, director of communications at Facebook (Privacy/Policy)
- Ben Parr, the now co-editor at Mashable.com
Below is the webcast via Blogtalkradio. And also here is a short post from Ben Parr briefly mentioning what the conversation was about (why journalists should use Facebook, the new features, etc.):
