Social media has given traditional media outlets a unique opportunity to turn what used to be a one-way distribution of information into a conversation. It enables us to push our content to followers and fans on Twitter and Facebook, and for those followers and fans to give immediate feedback in response. Listening has become part of the equation in a way it wasn’t in the past.

The topics that are hot in our industry right now include paywalls, newsroom social media policies and comment moderation. We plan to discuss those. But in the spirit of two-way conversation, we want to know what you think we should be talking about that we aren’t.

What questions do you have about how we use Twitter, Facebook, Tumblr and other social platforms? What are we doing well, and what do we need to work on?

Leave a comment below, and we’ll try to incorporate discussion of what you want to know in our talk.

I feel everyone wants to be first, but sometimes that isn’t always reliable. How do you become quick AND credible?
