Finally a few minutes to get caught up on Friday PR Picks. We usually publish several PR Picks monthly and I can promise you this is a great set of PR and social media tips, tactics, articles and insights from the past several weeks.

On the public relations front, several good crisis articles with a BP theme and big picture views.  PRTini‘s 20 tips for better townhall meetings is worth a read. More media relations insights, journalism pointers and several good items on press releases. And you’ll definitely want to read Andrew Worob’s post on ways to get a higher PR salary as well.

The social media picks cover a wide range of topics. Watch for the trend to dropping newswires for IR reporting in favor of social media to gain momentum. Katie Paine looks at the social media influencers that matter to business and declares Jack O’Dwyer “Measurement Menace of the Month.” Ever wanted to write a blog post in 15 minutes? Nerma Moore shows how. Valeria Maltoni and Tracy DiMarino share ways to use LinkedIn for intelligence gathering and reach. We also have several top Twitter tips to tantalize you. Try saying that five times fast!

As always the PR Library (Shhh. Quiet please.) is filled with more than 6,000 additional free PR resources and the Public Relations Bookstore is open 24 x 7 to serve you. We’re always glad to hear your suggestions so don’t be shy about commenting below. Have a fabulous Friday!
