Social media’s fast becoming the go-to place for all kinds of news – including the bad and dangerous kind. So what happens when disaster strikes? When crime occurs down the street? First-responders, city officials, and law enforcement are now using Facebook and Twitter to issue updates and manage citizen queries. But it’s a relatively young process that the press and the public can help improve. The question is: How?

On Wednesday, March 14th, join KPCC’s Kim Bui (social media editor) and guest panelists who’ll address how social media’s being used by government agencies; what the reaction’s been to online tools; and where journalists and regular people fit in to the info-spreading picture.

6:30pm – Doors Open
7:00pm – Program

Admission is free, but RSVP’s are required.
