At Oklahoma Watch, our goal is to produce ground-breaking investigative journalism about critical matters facing the state.
That means in-depth stories, deep data, public forums and video and audio reports that bring clarity to issues and hold public officials accountable.
Our work has impact because it reaches you. But when Facebook announced recently it was changing its News Feed, a reaction to complaints of an epidemic of fake news, our ability to reach you was put at risk. Social media is how we connect with many readers, interact with them and learn from them.
Facebook’s change means you’ll see more posts from your friends and family and fewer posts from news publishers and brands that you’ve “liked” or “followed”.
To make sure you see our stories, please follow the steps outlined below. We’re also suggesting some other tips for connecting directly to our content.
Help keep quality journalism front and center in your life by giving us “See First” status in your News Feed.
