[Twitter] Public Relations becomes Community Relations – Social Media
It’s going to be easier than managing a whole swathe of bloggers and twitterers and Facebook page owners. I’ve been working with a PR agency for a while (best part of a year) and one key concept is that Public Relations is about managing multiple Publics.

Build and manage the community and you automatically take on a “public relations manager role. How does it work? Well, what if you manage PR for a cosmetic company? link].
