PR Fail – a collection of bad things :(

How did we live before PR Fail? A Tumblr blog, it takes Twitter postings or del.icio.us bookmarks tagged with “prfail” or “uselesspr” in an attempt it says here, “to help PR people be better and give journalists and bloggers a way of sharing their bad experiences.

Link love gone kerrrayzee

I’m due another issue of the PR Friendly index. This is my listing of the top 100 PR blogs I read, ranked according to various publicly available metrics.

List of Social Computing Strategists and Community Managers for Enterprise Corporations 2008 This is quite some list Jeremiah’s putting together and I’m not sure about it. At what point does social media ‘start’? And surely this is for the likes of LinkedIn, not a central blog list? (tags: blogs lists socialmedia research jeremiahowyang forblog)

Forward to Fleishman Hillard

As from 21st July, I will be working as senior account manager in the digital team at Fleishman Hillard UK. Of course it’s sad to say goodbye to my Porter Novelli colleagues – and judging from this comment I think the feeling’s mutual. However, it’s a great opportunity to work in an expanding team, with […]
