Press Gazette: French journalists’ five day social media experiment

Five journalists from French speaking radio stations – France Inter, France Info, RTS and RTBF radio –  are to restrict their sources to Twitter and Facebook for five days “in an effort to determine the value of information received through social media,” reports Press Gazette, via Le Parisien.

Le Parisien reports that under a project called “Behind closed doors on the net”, which will take place between the 1 and 5 February, the journalists will have no access to TV, radio or print media and will have to get a view of world events through social media alone.
