DFM chat on prioritizing journalists' social media presence



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 maximizing time and prioritizing your social media presence online and how that can better serve your journalism.
What social networks should you be paying attention to?
Should you join every new social network that comes out?
What social networks are indispensable for news organizations?
Which ones are not that necessary in your field?

For instance, see the image above. Seene is a really cool new app/network that lets you take 3-D photos. But its network or application uses in journalism are limited, at best.
In conclusion, I just wanted to post a 3-D photo of my cat.

The feed is posted below. You can also check out past chats over here And Tweetchat is back, if that's what you prefer.
