Female Journalists of World War II
Create your Own Social Media Post
For years, newspapers provided a sense of community that social media tries to fill today, including announcements for community events, anniversaries, weddings, obituaries, and job vacancies. These announcements were a real draw for readers. But as the number of newspapers in the United States diminishes, journalists have also used social media as a way to get out their stories. Most newsrooms have a social media editor who is responsible for using Twitter, Facebook, and Instagram to push out stories to as many viewers as possible.
In this scenario, you are the social media editor in your newsroom. You were assigned to write a post about the anniversary of World War II based on one of the photographs in the carousel.
Click on “Select Image,” create your entry, and “post” comments in response. Research the topic of the photograph and the photographer by reading reliable sources you have used in class. Include a brief summary of each in your post. Practice smart digital citizenship by writing an entry and comments that are engaging and respectful.
