A changing profession
#1 Media change Source: Data never sleeps 2.0, Domo, April 2014
The fragmentation of media and shift to social forms of media is the narrative of the last decade.We’re shifting from broadcast as a means of communication with an audience to two-way communication.

Command and control is an illusion. The fragmentation of traditional media and the rise of social media has brought reputational management into sharp focus like never before.

“Organisations are obsessed with pushing brand and product messages. They want to appear cool and feel good about themselves rather than engage with their audiences.” Tom Foremski #5 Corporate media Source: Tom Foremski: Corporate media could replace traditional media, but must be audience led, Ketchum blog, May 2013

Public relations should be rooted in a listening and a two-way dialogue. Think 20/80 or even 10/90.
#7 PESO Source: Ketchum
The future of the media like the future of public relations is a work in progress. If you want to maximise how many people in your community your content reaches on Facebook, Twitter or YouTube, you’ll need a paid element.

There is an inherent contradiction between this regimented approach to corporate communications and the dynamism and pace of social networks. Communicators must balance the agenda of a corporate organisation with content to drive engagement around real time events.
