The Facebook Journalism Project is proud to partner with the Society of Professional Journalists, the nation’s most broad-based journalism organization, to launch the SPJ Training Program for journalists. This new program will serve as an extension of FJP’s ongoing efforts to support quality journalism and provide tools and trainings for journalists and newsrooms.
SPJ has identified journalism professionals who will be trained in teaching Facebook tools to other journalists in newsrooms, classrooms, journalism institutions and conferences across the country. Participants in the SPJ trainings will learn skills to use Facebook for reporting and storytelling — including Live, groups, video, insights and safety features.
By creating an active community of trainers who can share expertise about the tools Facebook offers, this program will equip more journalists with the information and access to improve their skills and connect with their audiences.
