Facebook has launched a page to help journalists make better use of social networking as a source of information and enable them to get closer to their audience.
This page, launched Tuesday and called “Journalists on Facebook” (“Journalists on Facebook”), is the “growing number of journalists who use Facebook to find sources, interact with readers and enrich their stories,” said a Blog Justin Osofsky, director of media relations at Facebook.
The page will provide journalists with information to integrate their work in social network, he added.
Most major media have Facebook accounts, which have become almost indispensable in terms of visibility on the Internet.
Facebook also announced the launch of workshops to help journalists use Facebook as a reporting tool.
The U.S. site, with more than half a billion members, is working with journalists since 2010 to build bridges between social networks and traditional media.
