Reuters seeks a community manager to help facilitate robust and stimulating discussion of the news we deliver around the clock and around the world. This person will manage the discussions that take place across our internal (Reuters.com) and external (Facebook, Google+) platforms and come up with solutions for both hands on and automated quality control to maintain a place that encourages readers to contribute thoughtful dialogue.
The ideal candidate is someone who is encouraged by the idea of interacting with our readers, who knows how to promote content that will start smart conversations, who asks questions that will help facilitate and guide those discussions, and someone who won’t get frustrated or discouraged by “trolls.”
The job’s based in New York. Read Anthony’s full post for qualification details and contact information for applying.
WITNESS is working with YouTube and Storyful (www.storyful.com), the citizen media aggregation and verification service, to create and curate a human rights video channel on YouTube that collects and promotes videos that capture and contextualize breaking human rights stories around the world.
This provides an exceptional opportunity to ensure that human rights video - both from hotspots and forgotten situations - is prominent on YouTube. It will also allow WITNESS to share the best practices and tools that enable people to better document and secure justice using video.
The channel will tell breaking stories in human rights through the lenses of citizen witnesses, human rights activists and journalists who upload their video to Youtube everyday. Part breaking news, part alert network, the channel will give a global audience “on-the-ground” perspectives on breaking human rights events and underreported human rights stories often absent from mainstream media sources. Beyond the headlines, the channel will engage the wider context behind evolving controversies, and, where appropriate, point to campaigns and ways people can take action.

How they did it:
This year we started with new research (PDF) from Georgetown University—which drew from two years of census data to determine the prospects for myriad majors—to narrow down our list to more than three dozen popular college majors. We also used data from the Bureau of Labor Statistics, equally weighing the following categories to determine current and future employment and earnings potential for our final ranking.
The final ranking stats for journalism:
Unemployment, recent grad: 7.7 percent
Unemployment, experienced grad: 6.0 percent
Earnings, recent grad: $32,000
Earnings, experienced grad: $58,000
Projected growth, 2010–2020: -6 percent
