Black Country Social Media Cafe: Excellent Journalism 2.0 talk

Filed under: BCSMC,Black Country Social Media Cafe — admin @ 6:10 am

The mixture of informal gathering and a more formal talk went down well again at yesterday’s Black Country Social Media Cafe. Dan Slee, Philip John, and Linda Jones did a magnificent job of leading us through the changing world of the newspaper industry.

What’s particularly good about the panel/discussion format is that everyone throws in a few opinions, and everyone learns something new. Aptly shown by Dan’s after-event-tweeting:

What did I learn? Newspapers have an important role to play in the local media, but if they don’t adapt quickly enough to the opportunities offered by social media they could see themselves marginalised by the likes of The Lichfield Blog and the work of Talk About Local.

I also learnt that of all the social media people at the BCSMC, I am probably the worst photographer:

As always I am looking for suggestions for both speakers and topics (and photographers) for future events, so any ideas let me know.

Thanks to all those who came along, and this month’s sponsor Wolverhampton Development Company.
