RTDNA webinar: Track news and win on social media

April 17, 2017 01:30

The free and powerful tool every newsroom can use today to track news and win on social media

Drinking from the firehose of Twitter, or trying to Facebook follow every public agency in your market is impossible, and you'll always miss interesting posts. What if there were a way to alert you whenever a PIO posted something that was generating more interest than usual? What if there were a way to find that fascinating post from a source, amidst all the routine stuff they tweet? What if you had a real-time report of how your competitors' Facebook posts were doing that you could use to inform social media selections, web story assignments, and even your 5pm lead?

What if the tool were free, and available right now?
RTDNA is teaming up with Facebook's newly acquired social signals service, CrowdTangle, to show you ways to mine social media for breaking news, stories that are not yet viral but will be, and audience interests that can help your station and website engage viewers in deeper and more meaningful ways.
Grab your assignment desk, web team, reporters, producers and EPs, and join us for the live webinar.

This session is an example of the type of training you can expect at the RTDNA/SPJ/NAHJ Excellence in Journalism 2017 conference this September in Anaheim, CA.
