Mark Little, CEO and founder of Storyful

Mark Little, an award-winning foreign correspondent, has more than 20 years’ experience in TV and digital journalism. At Storyful, the world’s first social media news agency, he leads a team of journalists and technologists who discover and verify the most compelling content on platforms like YouTube and Twitter. He said he thinks this could be the golden age of storytelling, but news organizations will need to evaluate their relationships with their audiences and sources. An ethical model, for example, will credit the actual creators of a video, not just “YouTube.”
