This panel will investigate historic and contemporary uses of social media by noncommercial broadcasters, and examine how social media technologies and channels are re-shaping the goals and objectives of public media organizations. The panelists will consider whether the integration of social media into public media represents an enhancement of localism and service to citizens, or a diversion from public broadcasting's historic mission to promote democracy and foster understanding across diverse audiences.
