ABSTRACT: Citizen journalists, Twitter-revolution, social journalism: There is whole bunch of buzz words related to social media. And social media is said to reshape the world, in particular journalism. But still there is only a minority of (not only) German editors and freelancers who actually use Facebook, Twitter and Foursquare in a professional manner – and know about the impact of these tools. This presentation aims to give a quick overview of how social media does change – and enrich – journalistic work and education.
BIO: Brought up near Heidelberg and unsure what to do she decided to do “something with media”. Tried out a lot and ended up in the north of Germany studying journalism (early focusing on the blogosphere). After instructive experiences at the Bild-Zeitung, a TV-Talk-Show and a news agency she finally spent two years reporting about local issues and crime for the Frankfurter Rundschau. Moving to Hamburg in 2008 she started as an editor for a women’s magazine writing about sex and the Internet and soon got offered a job to teach (upcoming) journalists in blogging and audio slideshows. By now she is a convinced freelancer whose income is based on three pillars: lecturing, writing and social media.
