  • 4. Social media use
    • “ Marketers and public relations professionals today are confronted with an astounding array of new communications channels. Internet-based social media tools like blogs, podcasts, online video and social networks are giving voice to the opinions of millions of consumers. While mainstream media continues to play a vital role in the dissemination of information, even these traditional channels are increasingly being influenced by online conversations. The “new influencers” are beginning to tear at the fabric of marketing as it has existed for 100 years, giving rise to a new style of marketing that is characterized by conversation and community.”
    • ~ New Media, New Influencers, and Implications for Public Relations , by Paul Gillin, Senior Fellow, Society for New Communications Research, 2008.
