The Media Council of PNG is partnering with ExxonMobil PNG to facilitate a Social Media Training over Zoom video conferencing.
This is an initiative by ExxonMobil PNG, the operator of the PNG LNG Project, to open up its access to social media training expertise, to the members of the MCPNG, with a specific focus on mainstream media news online teams.
Social Media has become the ‘go to’ place for news and current issues, and its scope and use by mainstream newsrooms has expanded to include advocacy, crowd-sourcing of information, and identifying audiences, listener and readership.
It is encouraging to see mainstream newsrooms being innovative in their online platforms, and integrating multiplatform delivery of news services to our people.
The MCPNG is excited that ExxonMobil PNG is willing to sponsor this training by providing a virtual trainer from an international social media organisation – Social Stimulator, who will facilitate this training.
The objective of the training is to provide participants with some skills to develop social media content and guiding principles and tactics to engage effectively on your social media channels.
The training is scheduled for Friday 12th February 2021.
