Are we at the point where we no longer need social media guidelines or do we absolutely need them? Or is it so case by case that it’s impractical?
Heron: At NYT, we decided we didn’t need one because things moved so fast. We also wanted to allow for experimenting. At WJ, reporters wanted one so they knew what they should and shouldn't do.
Carvin: AP has one. Some reporters begged that we have one because they needed it spelled out for them about things they are advised not to do.
Patel: Instead of having a list of dos and don’ts, embrace social media.
De Rosa: It’s about giving people training and making sure they know how to get started, and those people tend to be the ones who need the guidelines.
