    Find qualified experts contributed by fellow journalists. Search by news topic.
  • ProfNet Connect
    Nearly 50,000 experts, media and professional communicators. Profiles are searchable by keyword and geographic location, and include photos, video, links to white papers and more. Follow them on Twitter @ProfNet.
  • UNC News Experts Search
    Search for an expert at the University of North Carolina, Chapel Hill.

Social Networking

  • LinkedIn
    LinkedIn icon After creating an account, search by individuals or company.
  • Twitter Search ("Chapel Hill")
    twitter icon Search for a topic or organization, then check out who they're following or who's following them. For instance, knowing who Chapel Hill-Carrboro City Schools is following and who is following them may lead you to parents or others interested in the Chapel Hill / Carrboro school system.
