It was bound to happen sooner or later.  Facebook has jumped into the journalism game by creating a page for journalists.

The new Journalists on Facebook page is geared to helping  journalists use Facebook as a reporting tool complete with tips and tricks from fellow journalists.

I just checked the page and it already has over 7,200 likes and growing and lists several notable journalists from Howard Kurtz of The Daily Beast and Diane Sawyer of ABC News as fans or members of the page.

The page just launched so there are no words of wisdom from the collective hive yet but this could be an interesting experiment to see if Facebook can convince journalists that Facebook can help them in their jobs rather than be seen as a threat to their livelihoods.
