Next Social Hour: Feb. 22 – Why is community interaction our responsibility?


For February’s social hour we’ll be returning to The Canvas. Our topic: how and why we interact with our online audiences. A handful of community managers/social media coordinators from local news orgs will be on hand to describe their company policies. But how we interact with our communities is only part of the story. Why we do it is the bigger question.

“This is a question I still find challenging and in the morphing of old to new media, it seems that community managers are having to answer this more and more,” says Alexandra Manzano, social media and engagement coordinator at the Oregonian. “The framing of why we do this also helps me to figure out what the heck I’m supposed to be doing.”

Come join your fellow journalists for food, drinks and what’s sure to be a good conversation.
