Mobile Storytelling: iPhones, mics and apps

All journalists need to know how to take photos with their phones, and understand when (and if) to post them on social media. In this lesson we will discuss two topics: 1. How, where and when to post cell pics. 2. Legal rights and ethical social media obligations.

  1. What's the big deal? It's about the sharing.
  2. In the following cell pic, I shot and posted onto Instagram this photo of two guest speakers at the College Media Assoc. conference in Philly...from my seat. A quiet, fast and easy method of disseminating information.

  4. Don't think this necessarily pertains to journalists? Think again!
  5. Ethics and student media policies

  6. Cell phone journalism should also be accurate! FAST and ACCURATE! But just like a news story or caption, there are guidelines to follow when posting images and captions taken with a cell.
  7. NPPA Code of Ethics
  8. Consider a policy on mobile phone usage, including the following issues:
  9. - is it okay for writers covering an event to post cell pix online before photographers covering the same event do?
  10. - are reporters encouraged to use their cell photos at an event, with or without a photographer?
  11. - should 'being first' override quality?
  12. - should editors require quality, and what does that mean?
  13. - what about your own standards of quality? Is a blurry photo, or a subject that's too far away, 'good enough?'
  14. - do you have a social media editor to handle mobile phone usage?
