[Social Media] 5 reasons to practice old school PR
There’s been much speculation over the longevity of ‘old school’ methods and how social media will eventually replace the press release, the press conference and good old ‘look’em in the eye’ relationships. To be sure, I’ve embraced social networking, geo-locating, and instagram as much as the average up-to-date PR pro, but the more I look at the practice of public relations itself, the more I realize how much the old tried and true methods are the ones that continue to resonate and work. Easy answer: get to know your media contacts. Nobody reads them anymore!”

However, when you look a little further into the definition shared above and beyond that, you can start to make a strong correlation between such an ecosystem, and the community around a blog or social presence. While not conclusive, these are usually the most popular reasons a blog attracts readers, subscribers, social shares, etc. The “energy flows” start to happen, either in the comments of the blog itself, discussions about the article across social networks, or simply sharing with friends with no further action.

The truth is that I am not an IT professional (not even by a long shot), but I do understand the complexity of creating something in a computer language that was never meant to be commercialized the way it has been, and then put it on to the Internet - a channel that was never meant to support these types of media and work channels - with the expectations that once something is "live" it is as final and complete as a printed ad.
