Part of our mission at the Facebook Journalism Project is to provide tools and trainings for journalists around the world. Today, we’re announcing a global training program with Storyful, an award-winning social media intelligence agency that verifies and contextualizes digital content. The program will offer tips and cross-platform best practices for journalists as they discover social media content online that is relevant to their reporting.
Starting this month, we are launching a team of Storyful trainers to hold in-person and virtual trainings for journalists. The program is intended to support journalists as they navigate the flow of information across social platforms and determine authenticity of user-generated content.
Through this partnership, we plan to train journalists in Taiwan, India, Australia, Indonesia, Poland, Sweden, El Salvador, Panamá, Guatemala, Canada and the United States with more countries to come.
