The NorthWest of Boston group of weeklies in Massachusetts is kicking off a group project. The topic? How communities use social media. What a great idea for a group project.
WHAT THEY DID: From Kathy Cordiero, Editor in Chief: "A group of four pubs is working on a regional enterprise project looking at the whether and how communities use social media. It's a four-part series:
Part 1: A social media expert talks about getting started.
Part 2: A look at the ways social media is being used by local government bodies (Town Hall).
Part 3: How churches use social media as a communication tool.
Part 4: How police departments use social media."
THE TAKEAWAY: Group projects are a great way to pool resources and share ideas. Anything about social media these days is sure to be of interest to your readers.
