A struggling engagement with young people has resulted in news organisations experimenting with their use of social media as a way of addressing a widening gap in their audience. In a series of blog posts, I have examined the use of Instagram as a platform for distributing news content. I found some common trends and good practices.
Mark Frankel is the social media editor of BBC News. He managed a team of audience engagement producers and writers who post regular content to Twitter, Facebook, Google+, and Instagram. I'm interested in Instagram, and why the BBC is so keen to explore this platform for news.
This is a list of what I consider are ten of some of the best examples of news video on social media, including content from: BBC, Bloomberg, Press Association, NASA, Vice, and others.
