EBU News Social Media Workshop, 13 September 2012, Geneva

Eurovision held its first Social Media Workshop on 13 September 2012 at the Starling Hotel in Geneva.

Moderating the sessions were Storyful's Claire Wardle and Markham Nolan as well as BBC Journalism's Matthew Eltringham.

The workshop brought together social media users and editors from ARD, ZDF, BBC, ITN, HRT, SVT, ORF, TVE, RTS and YLE.

Together they sought to establish guidelines to collaborate, facilitate and accelerate the search, validation and verification process and to best safely exploit the wealth of sources and material from social media.
