  • Where newspapers still have a massive advantage, however, is many years of trust instilled in the brand. Hopefully, reporters will have worked hard and cultivated numerous contacts with the key people within a community i.e. key stakeholders.
  • The BBC’s way of writing for the web has always been a template for good web writing, not least because of the BBC’s experience with having to meet similar challenges with Ceefax – the two shared a content management system and journalists writing for the website would see the first few pars of their content cross-published on Ceefax too.
  • Tips are good, but I’d also like to take this further. How about geo-tagging posts with a foursquare check-in and then feeding the RSS into a Google Map to create a automated story map? Daniel Bentley briefly wrote about the possibility of doing this last year, but I’ve yet to find a plugin or app that allows me to do exactly what I want.
  • The hack that appeared to draw the most gasps from the assembled journalists in the room, and consequently won, was Articlr, which was presented by Jason Grant. It was a back-end tool for easily monitoring social media and rival coverage of a story in real-time, and then simply dragging-and-dropping elements from external sites into a story package. With a bit of geo-location goodness thrown in.
  • Others are sitting on the sidelines watching and hoping that at some point they may feel comfortable, or have the relevant rules in place to step into social media. As the hours and days pass all they are doing is missing the opportunities that are there; those opportunities to extend communication and support local neighbourhood officers who are trying to make communities safer. The simple tip is to start it now and not to get left behind.
