Social Media has changed the way that both journalists and audiences find and share the news. How are these changes affecting journalistic practice? And what are the social media skills that journalists need today? 

You'll explore the social media strategies of major UK news media outlets and journalists and the different social platforms and how to use them effectively. Learn how to use social media to verify and manage content from various sources, as well as explore best practices in developing relationships with communities through online channels.

London experiences are an exceptional opportunity to learn remotely from leading industry experts, get personalized tips of the trade, and engage with exclusive guest speakers.
