Liz Heron, emerging media editor at the Wall Street Journal, has moved to Facebook to bolster its ties with reporters and journalism companies/institutions.
The Washington Post and New York Times alum announced her new job on FB, posting that she will “work directly how FB partners with journalists and media organizations at a time when FB is putting a big emphasis on news and mobile.”
She views FB as an “incredible, vast database of human experience.”
The site has a lot of news, “sources to be developed, meaningful communities for journalists to build and experiments to be tried,” according to Heron.
She looks forward to approaching “news-gathering and storytelling from a new vantage point.”
