The Facebook Journalism Project was created in January 2017 to ensure that quality news thrives on Facebook. Lynn Walsh will lead a workshop covering Facebook tools for journalists, including Live, Groups, Video, Insights and Safety features.
FJP focuses on three pillars:
- Collaborative development of new products
- Tools and trainings for newsrooms
- Tools and trainings for people
In 2018, Facebook partnered with SPJ to train a network of professionals to teach Facebook Tools for Journalists at conferences, workshops and newsrooms around the country. Facebook and SPJ are committed to creating opportunities for journalists everywhere to learn about the ways Facebook tools can help create and share incredible works of journalism, as well as engaging the public in the stories about their communities.
