Plus, we don’t have to hear Carol Lewis.
I would love to watch it live on WCSN, but their blackout policy prohibits me from viewing it from my ISP.
I was shocked to hear CBC journalists now has a formal “Facebook Policy” for their employees.
I like Facebook and LinkedIn, as it is a great tool for social networking and bookmarking. You can freely connect to me as your friend in Facebook, or link to me in LinkedIn.
In this article, www.insidethecbc.com/facebookpolicy, they quote:
It may compromise your work by letting friends see other friends on your network,â€ the policy document says. It may also not be in your interest to identify yourself as a â€˜friendâ€™ of a source on their network.â€
In the context of basic reporting, you do not want one source to â€™seeâ€™ what another source says, nor do you want your private â€˜conversationâ€™ with a source becoming public. Adding sources as â€˜friendsâ€™ makes the management of this much trickier.â€
What are your thoughts?
