SPJ Madison Pro Chapter Hosts Google 101 for Journalists

The Madison Pro Chapter of the Society of Professional Journalists (SPJ) invited journalists from print, broadcast and digital to Google 101 for Journalists. This unique, free session led by Google’s Jake Parillo  introduced ways journalists can search smarter, keep better tabs on their beats, see what’s hot and what’s not, add a visual edge to online content, and use Google on the go when reporting in the field.

Google 101 for Journalists was held Oct. 13, 7 pm, at the Vintage Brewing Company, 674 S. Whitney Way, Madison, Wis.

Every day, millions of people around the world use Google’s search engine to find what they’re looking for. Editors, journalists, producers, and others in the media have long known just how essential it is to be able to find and use information efficiently and effectively, and this Google 101 introduction demonstrates ways to work more efficiently and effectively on the web. Learn how to get the most from Search and other free tools from Google.
