Creating a buzz around your stories on social media does not always come easy.

Steve Buttry, Lamar visiting scholar at Louisiana State University and previously digital transformation editor at Digital First Media, led a workshop on community engagement at the New York Press Association conference last week.

Among the slides, Buttry explains how content curation works, how to organise a live chat, and shares his tips for video engagement.
