We spend a lot of time thinking about this challenge in our day-to-day work in social journalism. And that’s what led us to bring together people with common experiences across the industry into an ONA working group focusing on the ethics and standards of social and digital newsgathering.

Eric Carvin and Fergus Bell, the founders of the ONA social newsgathering working group, are social media editors at The Associated Press, and Eric also chairs ONA’s News Ethics Committee.

Learn more about what the issues they will address with the social newsgathering working group: Social newsgathering: Charting an ethical course - Online News Association

Also, check out Eric Carvin and Mandy Jenkins’s panel discussion at SXSW about ethics in verification on social media.

The Internet is just like any other public space. Women face the same discrimination and harassment that they end up facing on the street.
