Social medias are becoming the biggest way for companies to get their name out to their audience. The old way of getting information out is starting to merge with the new technologies and the PR world is moving with it. Blogging has become an outlet equal to journalism. I also learned how important your personal profile is on social medias, they are what professionals in your field as well as the rest of the world see and gives them their first impression about you, so it is important not to have anything hurtful to your life.
When you just sit down and think about it, it’s surprising to think of how important the internet is becoming to the Public Relations world. It is where the future of the industry is going. I never thought about how wide spread and influential what is on the internet can be. There is a new form of word of mouth that reacts far more people now than before with the use of blogging and different social media networks such as Twitter. The idea of PR 2.0 seems like such an obvious idea but when they actually talked about the mixture of the new ways of getting information out it was surprising to see the growth.
I think it will be interesting to watch the popularity of the social media networks and see how they grow or change in the future. This will help determine how influence it will continue to gain. It will also be interesting to see if colleges respond to the growth of social networks and make classes about it or incorporate these ideas into there preexisting classes. I also want to see what other information comes out on this subject.
I think that this book is very helpful to anyone in the PR field. It gives insight on where the field is going along with what needs to be learned when using the social media networks and all types if outlets on the internet. Since these type of media is growing so fast it is easy to see why it is so important in this field and how helpful it will be to know how to use it correctly. It is especially important to student newly in the field because of how familiar they already are with social medias and how much that will help them if they can use the knowledge in a professional matter.
