Why social media roles in newsrooms shouldn’t just be for ‘young people’ | Poynter.

Journalists of all ages should recognize that social media conversations aren’t entirely frivolous; they can help us understand who community members are, what’s important to them and how they’re connecting with stories. We’re all working toward a mission of community building, whether it’s online or not. If we put aside our ageism and work to recognize the value in one another’s experiences, we can better collaborate on projects and make informed decisions in the newsroom.
