Social media is a hot and important topic. I am more than happy if you cover this panel discussion at the FCC (details below) as part of the research for your year-end final project. This is just a suggestion, not an instruction. You are free to choose any other topics, subject to my approval.
September 19, Club Journalism Panel: How Social Networks are Changing the News Business

The Arab Spring, China rail disaster and London riots are just three examples of how social networks have changed the way news is gathered and created.
An FCC panel of two editors and a former veteran journalist will open the discussion on the advantages – and potential dangers – of using social media to report news.
This panel is the first in a series of club events aimed at helping journalist members exchange their experience and ideas.
$50 (MEMBERS) $60 (GUESTS)
Drinks and snacks will be served
Please reserve with the FCC reception at (tel) 2521 1511, (fax) 2868 4092 or (email) firstname.lastname@example.org
