Archived entries for social networking


The objective of BCNMediaLab is to be a gathering of journalists and communication professionals with an interest to debate around the issues shaping the future of journalism and the impact of the Internet and new technologies, so we can create and maintain an open pool of ideas. We want to collectively reflect on the digital present and future, and help establish the basis for a more innovative market that could evolve and adapt to the new media context.

BCNMedialab: the role of paperThe role of paper

When organizing the third BCNMediaLab event we started asking ourselves: how will be the newspapers and magazines of the future? What will be their role in a news ecosystem dominated by real time, ubiquity and overload of information? Will they remain influential? Will they even be daily? Sign up here.

In the next BCNMediaLab we want to discuss an option that is increasingly popular among journalists, as a solution to the lack of job openings and poor working conditions: to become entrepeneurs. Four journalists will tell us their success stories and share their experiences with us. See the video.

Journalists and social networking
October 21st 2010, 19:30, @ 37 Grados.
In the first BCNMediaLab edition we wanted to analyze the cultural clash that happens with the presence of journalists in social networks interacting directly, without intermediation, with the rest of participants in the media process (sources, journalists, readers…). In this cultural clash, both journalists and companies have something to lose, and something to win. See the video.

Journalists and social networking

Date: October 21st
Time: 19:30h
Place: 37 Grados (Av. Roma / Comte Borrell)

How far can journalists go in their personal social network profiles? Are they representing themselves or their companies? How far can companies go to enforce their internal rules and guidelines?

Octavia Nasr was fired from CNN after publishing on Twitter a message praising a muslim cleric, founder of Hezbollah, after his death. Mike Wise, sports writer on the Washington Post, was suspended for a month after saying on his Twitter account that a football player was punished for 5 games instead of 6, as part of a experiment.

This and other instances evidence the cultural clash in newsrooms between old standards of (alleged?) objectivity and the new open channels of communication between journalists and audience, where objectivity isn’t as valued as trust and veracity.

In the first BCNMediaLab edition we want to analyze this cultural clash, in which both journalists and companies have something to lose, and something to win. To reflect on this topic, we have invited to chat with us (and you):
