Examples of Good Web 2.0 Newsrooms

March 15, 2010

  After my most recent post about newroom 2.0 make over tips, I’d now like to emphasize that there is a legitimate need to change towards the use of social media as part of your communication strategy.

 Therefore, I went looking for good examples of Web 2.0 newsrooms to share with others. It is evident that social media has/is changing how the new-release structure and functionality is performed.    If done correctly, then feasibly, one is able to go farther and cheaper in the social media world.  This  inturn is creating a paradigm shift in power,  transitioning from large conglomerated brands  and shifting over to individuals, services and integration of the business world down to the street level through the new virtualized social landscape.   Therefore, I say jump in and get your feet wet with your own newsroom 2.0, personally.

 Below is a short list for you to take a look at for consideration, for comparison, and for ideas for your own social media enabled newsroom 2.0 planning.  Ultimately, you want to attract, interact and enhance the journalist’s online experience. I understood that there might be many journalists who are not ready for, nor understand 2.0 yet. And, that’s ok. But, here are a few of my suggestions a few business selections and actual news outlets. I really like Scannia’s page. Which one’s do you like best and why? Got another suggestion, post a comment for us to see other good examples and explain why you think they make good Web 2.0 newsrooms.
