  • Mary's article shows how the Norwich Evening News promoted its readers' poll on Twitter by being interesting and engaging.

    It is important to have a person behind a feed to give a publication a human voice and show you are listening as well as broadcasting.

    I still support the use of feeds though, as it is labour intensive to post every story up individually. I started using feeds for the newspapers I used to work on back in 2008, because there was no one to post when I was on holiday. It kept a new service alive.

The Future of News in Brighton

Journalists and new media folk in Brighton and Sussex are invited to join the UK Future of News Group Brighton nest.

It’s an opportunity to discuss new ideas within the news industry with like-minded people.

The first meeting on Monday, February 8, is at The Skiff in Brighton from 7.15pm.

Speakers are:

Simon Willison the man behind and the Guardian’s MPs’ expenses crowdsourcing project and many other projects.

Jo Wadsworth web editor at Brighton’s Argus newspaper. Jo will be talking about building an online community and blogging.

The original UK Future of News Group set up by Adam Westbrook has held two meetings in London, with interesting speakers and great networking opportunities.

I couldn’t make it to January’s meet and felt extremely jealous reading the #fong and #futureofnews tweets.

After joining the London group I started a thread on the message board asking if any Brighton-based media folk would be interested in setting up a ‘nest’.

Withing 24 hours of my post Judith Townend of was ready to run with the idea.

My contribution? Well, I’ve invited many  Johnston Press journalists from across Sussex.

Fingers crossed this will be a great regular event.
