Tips on social media verification and online corrections

Earlier this week I had a great chat about online verification and corrections with of Journalism.co.uk. You can listen to our talk in this podcast published today. McAthy also interviewed four other people to gather insight:

  • Claire Wardle, director of development and integration, Storyful
  • Malachy Browne, news editor, Storyful
  • Fergus Bell, senior producer and UGC lead, Associated Press
  • Paul Bradshaw, course leader of online journalism MA at Birmingham City University, visiting professor at City University London and publisher of Online Journalism Blog and HelpMeInvestigate

The podcast, which you can play below, offers an excellent collection of tips and advice for social media verification and online corrections. You can also listen to the second podcast on this page to hear me talk a bit more about crowdsourced verification.
