According to an article by Kelly Wilson, many journalists are creating profiles on the popular networking Web site Facebook, which was once intended for college students. Lori Schwab, at the time the executive director of the Online News Association, is the main subject of the article. She believes that Facebook will be a great resource for journalists young and old. Wilson writes:

Across the board, social sites are a way for people to interact as they never could before (or at least, never could with such ease). For journalists that means contacting others for ideas and support on tough assignments or connecting with editors for advice and job opportunities. Many organizations have gone a step further to create groups only for members of their news outlets’ networks.
