Social Media Verification is journalism's new frontier

Storyful Logo

I missed this last week:

Accelerating News Corp's digital transformation and video strategy, the company has acquired Storyful, the world's first social news agency.

Storyful, of course, are a brilliant lot, who have made the skill of verifying stories and media found on social networks into a commercial art form. The vast sea of material now available to us as journalists on social media is a huge, and still largely untapped for finding, exploring and illustrating stories. And precious few news organisations have take the skills needed to do that seriously.

Looks like News Corp just started taking it very seriously indeed...

Storyful's post on the story is on their blog. A real range of comments on the post.
