On Friday, May 1, I’ll be helping to give the free social media training being offered by the Public Media Collaborative for Bay Area people who work for mission-driven organizations — community organizations, church groups, social service agencies, charities, etc. It’s part of Journalism Innovations II: New Work & Ideas for Making the News, an event organized by Arts and Media. Social media training will be offered in English and Spanish.
- WHEN: May 1, 9 a.m.-5 p.m. PT
- WHERE: McLaren Hall, University of San Francisco (Directions)
I’ll be handling Twitter training, from 1-2:15 pm.
