Blog readers and social media followers are funny. Sometimes they kick you in the pants. Other times they reward you with feedback, insight and amusement. It’s all good.
Thanks to the encouragement of a couple of dozen of you (you know who you are), I’m resurrecting my Friday PR Picks posts.
You may recall a few of them from the past including:
- Fri PR Picks: 39 Smart Social Media Tips for PR
- PR Fail Lessons: 96 Public Relations Not-tos
- 36 More Terrific Twitter Tips for PR Pros
- Best PR Twits: Week of Jan 23-29-2011
New & Improved Social Media & PR Tips & Picks
This new and improved, sleeker and sexier version will include lots of social media insight, tips and practical tools along with traditional PR perspectives. But it will also be a shorter curated list with just a dozen or so of the week’s very best links from my daily @theprcoach Twitter feed.
Nice and simple. Practical and useful. Sometimes with a theme but other times just a collection of useful, must-read social media and PR tips for thoughtful, busy social media, PR and marketing people.
Please let me know if you like these Friday Picks share any suggestions to make them even better.
On with the show for this week…
