I would like to share an article from BusinessInsider.com about the new “Social Media Guidelines” section in the AP Stylebook.
The AP Stylebook caused a bit of an uproar back in April when they announced, via Twitter:
Responding to reader input, we are changing Web site to website. This appears on Stylebook Online today and in the 2010 book next month.
Well, the new Stylebook is out, and it includes some additional webby updates. Namely, a new “Social Media Guidelines” section.
The new Social Media Guidelines section includes information and policies on using tools like Facebook and Twitter, how journalists can apply them to their work and how to verify sources found through them. Also included are 42 separate entries on such terms as app, blogs, click-throughs, friend and unfriend, metadata, RSS, search engine optimization, smart phone, trending, widget and wiki.
