A Google Glass motion image composite from a recent parade.
Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.

Today we are talking about the use of news images in social media. Should photographers post their news photos to those platforms? (SPOILER: Yes. But how?) What are the pros and cons of posting copyrighted photos to Twitter or Facebook? How can news orgs use Instagram or other platforms for images?  What platforms are out there that journalists can use?

DFM chat on publishing tweets


Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.

Today we are talking about publishing tweets. Yes, they're public and the terms of service allow anyone to publish them (with embeds, for instance). BUT! Should you do it just because you can?
Publishing tweets augments the audience of a Twitter user. When is it proper to shine a light and publish a tweet? Are there circumstances where it is NOT OK to publish tweets? Do you notify Twitter users before  when you publish their tweets (say, when you Storify them)? Before or after?

Obviously, all your #dfmchat tweets will be published and archived, because irony.

DFM chat on aggregation

Journalists, members of Digital First Media and pretty much everyone else who wants to - are going to be taking part on the weekly Twitter chat at noon, Eastern Time.

Today we're talking about aggregation: How to do it properly (and ethically); how to address concerns over veracity. Since we've already tackled the philosophical issues involved with it, today we are focusing on the practical. HOW. Yes, #realtalk will be part of it.
