Los Angeles Facebook Journalism Meetup

Yesterday, I was on a panel for the first Facebook Journalism Meetup in Los Angeles hosted by FB's Vadim Lavrusik. It was a nice change of pace in terms of meetups in Hollywood, which are typically around social media or entertainment. I could be generalizing, but it typically seems like New York, DC and possibly even San Francisco have a stronger journalism and media community. I was joined on the panel by The Daily's Hunter Walker, LA Times' social media and engagement editor Martin Beck and NBC LA's Mekahlo Medina . Here are some great quotes I pulled from the Twitter feed. You can watch a recording of the livestream and read Vadim's really informative presentation around Facebook stats and how to better use the platform as a journalist and new organization at Facebook.com/journalists.
