One of the most important jobs we do as journalists is find good sources that help us with our storytelling. Thanks to the Internet and social media, this task has become easier.
And thanks to American Public Media’s Public Insight Network, journalists and sources can find each other. According to APM, journalists using the network can “target their questions to sources based on demographics, geography, expertise or interests, and capture that intelligence in a confidential clearinghouse for future reference.”
Questions currently being asked on the network include:
- Do you host or attend Downton Abbey viewing parties?
- Do you own a small or micro-business?
- Why do you volunteer or donate?
- Are you a caregiver?
