Facebook is getting more and more serious about news. Today, the company announced the launch of some new journalist resources, including a Page called “Journalists on Facebook” and a new journalist workshop program that it says will span the globe.
A Facebook spokesperson tells WebProNews, “The new Page will serve as a resource for the growing number of reporters using Facebook to find sources, interact with readers, and advance stories. Content will be added regularly, and feedback from the journalism community will be incorporated.”
“As newsrooms become more social, the Page will provide a place for journalists to connect with each other, as well as have access to best practices for integrating the latest Facebook products with their work and connecting with the Facebook audience of more than 500 million people,” she adds.
