With so many unknowns I can’t help but think of how everything around us is experiencing monumental change.
Wherefore, today I joined the,
- Online News Association- https://journalists.org
- Electronic Frontier Foundation – https://www.eff.org
With their help and membership, I will be establishing a journalism code of ethics along with policies & practices. And will promote “the presence of these standards on a regular basis. “
I have also applied to join The Trust Project – https://thetrustproject.org
This will ensure I meet the guidelines set forth to be listed as a “news” organization on Facebook.
There is still lots to learn, nonetheless, this is a step in the right direction. So we can become a trusted source for anyone who stumbles on to this site.
Here’s what the site is missing in order to accomplish the listing
- Fact-Checking Policy
- Ethics Policy
- Corrections Policy
- Ownership & Funding Info
- Editorial Team Info
In April of 2008 Facebook published the article “Helping People Better Assess the Stories They See in News Feed.”
This meant a new “Context Button” became available. Which serves the purpose of promoting “transparency.” Especially in a world consumed with hyperbole and “alternative facts.”
Consequently, the COVID-19 pandemic, is exacerbating the need of information being shared on social media, to be discerned, by providing “objective context about the stories people see.”
My goal is to ensure I only share credible information from verified and trusted sources. This way, you can rest assured the information is factually based.
Please bear with me, as I continue to learn so I may adapt and evolve to meet the needs I believe will afford sustainability.
