Journalism, Social Media, and French Connections with Nita Wiggins
Things got interesting on Friday's 'Social Media for the CEO' radio show as hosts Eve Mayer Orsburn and Mary Adams explored the world of social media, journalism, and education with Nita Wiggins. They covered everything from social media in the classroom to the way social media affects news and the differences between French and American approaches. Nita observed during the show that "France is maybe 10 years behind the US in the way it approaches news coverage. Social Media is supporting the idea that people want information all the time and that may force European TV to put information on TV all the time." Don't panic if you missed the show.
