Facebook advertises for journalist to explain its value to news groups

Facebook has created a new role in its marketing team for an experienced journalist to help news organisations understand how the social network can be used as a reporting and distribution tool.

The “journalist program manager”, who will be based in New York, will be tasked with explaining the value of using Facebook to journalists, establishing best practices and identifying new partnership opportunities with industry bodies and academic institutions.

Job requirements include at least five years’ experience in journalism, deep understanding of social media and how it affects journalists – and a “passion for Facebook”.
