Facebook training succeeds despite wintry forecast

A great crowd braved the scary forecast to hear from Ben Meyerson of theĀ Chicago Tribune on the various ways we can use Facebook for reporting and disseminating our work.

Many thanks to our partner organizations for spreading the word, to St. Louis Public Radio for hosting our seminar, to the participants who came out in spite of threatened snowpocalypse, to the Society of Professional Journalists for approving us for the Facebook Journalism Project, and of course to Ben, for sharing his knowledge with us.

If you attended, please go to fb.me/postspjtraining and fill out the post-training survey. It is immensely helpful to SPJ and to us to better plan our programming. Thank you for your time!

Response to this program was so strong that we are seriously considering repeating it later in the year, if there is sufficient interest. If you did not get a chance to attend and would like to see it repeated, please contact us at stlouisspj@gmail.com and we will be sure that you get an invitation.
