Gordon MacMillan started the debate last month with a piece about the strongly conflicting views of two journalists on the role of social media in journalism.
They pointed out that journalists seem to either love or hate social media, feeling it must be at the forefront of everything they do, or that it is single-handedly destroying the essence of their industry," MacMillan said. But what many forget is that social media simply enhance what journalism has always been about — communicating. It allows a two-way dialogue instead of the one-way communication of the past.
