Facebook’s Lessons from the Front Lines of Social Media
Social media is no longer optional for PR practitioners, it’s a requirement in their daily repertoire. Just as pitches, press releases and press conferences have been the bread-and-butter of traditional PR, tweets, blog posts and Facebook Pages are the must-haves today. Hear lessons directly from Facebook about what’s worked and what hasn’t in its own use of social media in communications, and learn new strategies for applying it in your PR campaigns.
