Storify lesson on social media tools for photo/journalists

This week is social media week. On Monday the Intro to PJ students opened their Twitter and Instagram accounts. And tomorrow there will be at least eight new blogs born into the world. So to kick off their lesson on social media, I've created the following Storify tutorial. Because it's impossible to teach a class every single thing they will need to know to be responsible scholastic photojournalists, I selected a few stories via the WWW and placed them on Storify. I hope this tutorial will help them understand the power and influence social media has with a click of a mouse. Social media tools, like Twitter and Facebook, not only generate supplemental journalism content and drive readership, but they can also spread gossip and get people fired.
