Digital Identities, powered by Google News Lab, invites Swedish journalists to join an innovative programme on 14 September, 2016. You will learn how to use the power of social media and Google News Lab tools to capture audience attention for your stories.
No more forced errors, no more hasty and unstructured experiments. In this free, one-day workshop you will explore a choice of engagement models and we will assist you to design and run an experiment to extend the lifecycle of your stories online. The session will conclude with inspirational lightning talks from international journalists who are using social media to engage readers from the hyperlocal to global. This includes the Guardian, CNN, Dagens Industri as well as UK-based hyperlocal media Star and Crescent.
This free workshop, open to established journalists, will enable you to manage your Digital Identities online. No prior experience of social media is necessary. Google News Lab are supporting our programme and will provide a workshop focusing on how their suite of digital tools can help newsgathering and reporting.

About the Digital Identities framework
After 5 years and workshops in 10 countries, the Digital Identities framework has seen success working with media, culture and corporate professionals.
Last year a leading Dutch broadcaster used the framework to run their most successful campaign of the summer. In the UK, we supported an editorial team from a national newspaper to double the visitor numbers to a vertical in just three months. We helped a hyperlocal news website develop an informant network that has helped them break news stories, attracting national media coverage.
