Instead of Newspapers, Journalists Share News Via Facebook

It's pretty well known that younger readers (and at this point, older readers) are no longer getting their news from traditional newspapers, as some news organizations are embracing web technologies to report on important matters.

The Associated Press is partnering with other news organizations to cover next week's climate talks in Copenhagen led by the United Nations, and has created a Facebook hub page where journalists covering the talks will post stories and interact with readers, posting blog items, leading live discussions, and taking suggestions on what they should cover during the conference. Around 200 countries are expected to attend to help come up with an international agreement for controlling emissions of gasses leading to global warming.

The talks begin on December 7, and already the page, titled The Climate Pool has nearly 1,500 fans and counting. I'm interested to see how this pans out, given the immediate nature of Facebook updates and willingness of younger readers to post on a Facebook page.
