In this webinar…
A social media style guide creates a consistent voice, look and schedule that helps newsrooms engage audiences while providing journalists with information on how to act, speak and use images on social media. Every Tweet, Facebook or Instagram post should align with your newsgathering and visual standards. This workshop will help you develop a set of five guidelines, including: defining your voice, grammar and terminology, visual use, hashtags and post formatting.
