Media Online Services

Providing tools, guidance and support on how to engage with audiences on connected devices

What we do: Digital Storytelling & Skills

The Online & Social Media Unit helps Members to bring high-quality digital content to their audiences. We provide services and intelligence in the the areas of digital storytelling, social media, and digital skills.

We support Members in their efforts to reach digital audiences who are not consuming traditional radio and television. We help Members understand trends in order to create more relevant content and services.

Key areas of responsibility include our networks of Digital Storytelling Labs, Social Media Trends Experts and our Online Media Steering Committee of senior online managers. We also serve Members via publications, workshops, and by developing tools they request.

Another key focus is the development of partnerships with industry-leading companies and organisations, in the areas of online and social media. We work horizontally across the Media Department to exchange knowledge, incubate new services and to promote a digital way of doing things at the EBU.
