Maya Pope-ChappellMaya Pope-Chappell, a Wall Street Journal social media editor, has been hired by LinkedIn after five years with the paper.

She will be an editor in New York, said LinkedIn executive editor Daniel Roth.

At the Journal, Pope-Chappell has been working with social media editors in the U.S. and editors in Asia to build and cultivate audiences across the paper’s English-language and local-language sites. She has been working in Hong Kong.

Pope-Chappell joined Dow Jones in 2010 as an assistant web producer for WSJ.com’s Greater New York section. She moved to Hong Kong as an online editor in April 2012, where she managed regional online editions and took on the added role of expanding the Asia House of the Day offerings. Under her guidance and through her smart selections, the Asia HOD slideshows became wildly successful and are regularly one of the most-viewed features on both our English-language and local-language online editions.

She received her undergraduate degree from the University of California, Santa Cruz in 2006. She worked briefly in health care before beginning a career in journalism. She moved to New York in 2008 to attend the CUNY Graduate School of Journalism, where she specialized in multimedia and arts & culture reporting.
