Reporting through social networks throws up tech challenges

More from the beat blogging experiment, which involves 12 reporters in various US newsrooms using social networks and blogs in their reporting.

This post looks at the tech challenges facing reporters and editors who want to use social networks not just to find ideas for stories but also as tools for reporting stories. No problem if you just want to set up and use a Facebook group, but harder if you want multi-blog sites or a way to weave ugc into your network. They're going to give updates on the topic as the experiment goes on.

In the meantime, the beat blogging site has some good posts on social networking tools.
