#4M2013, the third Journalism and Social Media meetings organized by French CFI (Canal France International) were held from 12 to 14 June, 2013, in Montpellier, France. Numerous experts from 35 countries in Asia, Africa, Caucasus, the Balkans and the Arab world debated around the theme : “How has digital development transformed the news? Has there been any improvement in the quality of news provided?” The conference was covered by eight young bloggers from Thailand, Egypt, Syria, Azerbaijan, Georgia and France. You can find the complete coverage here [fr], in French, English and Arabic, their coverage of the debates, as well as interviews and pictures. More meetings are planned in 2013 in Nairobi (Kenya), in Georgia and, later, in Lebanon.
