Written by Evan Blackwell, CJE

Many yearbook staffs have already begun actively using social media such as Facebook and Twitter for marketing purposes, but those online communities also have value as reporting tools as well.

On Tuesday, Aug. 14 at 5:30 CDT, the National Scholastic Press Association (NSPA) will be hosting an online chat called “Using social media as a reporting tool.”

Steve Outing from Digital News Test Kitchen at the University of Colorado will be on the chat to provide tips and insights.
