Ozeconf – Social Media Trends and Citizen Journalism
18th June 2009 (Thursday) from 1:00pm until 2:00pm (AEST)
User generated content sites such as YouTube, Facebook, Wikipedia and micro/macro blogging services (eg Blogspot, WordPress and Twitter to name just a few) have been driving record traffic demands and changing the landscape of social media and online interactions across the world. Join us for a panel discussion on how citizen journalists are driving traffic patterns across research and education networks such as AARNet.
Nate Cochrane (Editor in Chief: Haymarket Media), John Cokley (Academic Staff: UQ School of Journalism and Communication), Elizabeth Egan (Industry Fellow: UQ School of Journalism and Communication), Cameron Reilly (Founder: The Podcast Network)
