Do you work with content from social platforms in your newsroom? What sorts of challenges do you run into around verification, rights and the safety of contributors -- not to mention your own journalists? ONA board members Eric Carvin of AP and Mandy Jenkins of Storyful, as well as Fergus Bell of Dig Deeper Media, will be at the Midway hack table to answer any questions you might have. You can also learn more about implementing ONA’s Social Newsgathering Ethics Code at their session on Thursday.
