JEMUN Social Media Journalists The JEMUN social media journalists will be provided with the following equipment: ● iPads ● GoPro cameras ● Instagram, Facebook and Twitter accounts
At the JEMUN Conference, Social Media Journalists will follow the production steps shown below.
Step #1: Learn about the agenda topic you will be reporting on before you come to the conference by reading books, doing research online, and learning new vocabulary. If you will be interviewing a guest speaker, make sure you do research about them before the conference. Make a list of your potential sources. This is where you will get the credible information you need to prepare a trustworthy social media post.
Step #2: With your partner, brainstorm the event / situation / happening / subject you’d like to report on. Some of this brainstorming can be done in advance, but a majority of it will be done at the conference. Step #3: Once you have a specific direction and focus on what you and your partner would like to report on and -- keeping your intended audience in mind -- plan the outline of your social media posts for Instagram, Facebook, Facebook Live and Twitter with your partner.
Step #4: Interview/photograph your sources. Verify information received.
Step #5: Finish editing your post according to the JEMUN Social Media guidelines.
Step #6: Get your post, title, and photos checked by one of the social media advisors.
Step #7: Post and follow comments to see if any updates or responses or shares/retweets are required.
