Facebook Journalism: News Day and webinars

The Facebook Journalism Project cordially invites you to join them for News Day this fall.

At these full day events, Facebook will share their latest product developments, lead hands-on workshops and discuss ways your newsroom can use Facebook, Instagram and CrowdTangle to connect with your audience in meaningful ways. You will also hear from publishers who are leveraging these platforms to discover content, increase engagement and build community. There will be an opportunity to speak with teams from across Facebook and plenty of time for Q&A at the all-day Help Desks.

Please register for the city that is most convenient for you. Note that the content for both days will be the same.
