The advent of social media has caused newsrooms to change dramatically. We are rapidly moving to a one-to-one media relations environment, where it is more challenging than ever to manage and maintain relationships not just with reporters, bloggers, but with everyone else. Social media platforms like Twitter, Facebook and LinkedIn have become the new playground for media relations professionals to connect with journalists and bloggers. There is now a need to move away from a one-size-fits-all pitching and develop more effective processes to cater to diverse palate of journalists. Traditional news release distribution methods are no longer sufficient in keeping up with the fast changing media environment. Media relations professionals need to cut through the noise by successfully integrating traditional and digital platforms to create real conversations and relationships with media to ensure their brand message reach wider audiences.
