Book News Annotation:

The rise of the Web and the growth of social media have changed the way many industries operate and work with clients, particularly within the last 10 years or more. The frequently misunderstood field of public relations (PR) is no exception. Solis, a principal in a PR and new media agency, and Breakenridge, a veteran of the PR industry and an educator in PR and interactive marketing, note that social media provides much more opportunity to deliver messages to both wider and more specific audiences. The authors detail how to adjust to the new landscape and perform successfully in it, how the emphasis and nature of communications has changed, and offer tools and strategies for participating and communicating in the realm of social media.
