A French-language broadcasters group will lock five journalists in a French farmhouse for five days, giving them access to nothing but Facebook and Twitter, to see how much news they can learn about.
While this sounds like a kind of interesting idea, I am not really sure what they are trying to prove. It isn’t exactly a secret that these are not news sources. And five days is nothing like long enough to do a scientific study. Still, it’ll be interesting to see what they come up with.
