After reading this and looking at the chapter we have to read for next week - they seem to go together. Journalists should allow technology to do most of the work and just be open on social networks. Allow your network settings to be public - but don't share information that you wouldn't want to be viewed by everyone.

FB is basically allowing journalists to start their "openness" on their network.

Facebook's f8 conference talks about real-time/sharing. Not sure if this will be welcomed with open arms - or if users will start getting annoyed.

Kind of an interesting article on how President Obama would need to step up his game in the social media world. It's amazing that there were only 100 million Facebook users in 2008. Now there are 800 million. Wow.

Some of the key points this article brings in is that 1) even though you're using social media to gain an audience and have them "Like" you, you still have to interact with them - and 2) yes, politicians can publish their thoughts on what they will do - but that still includes opening a two-conversation and interacting with your voters.

Social media will have a huge impact on the 2012 elections. The sites mentioned in this report will warrant watching. Nice find, Jessica.
