LinkedIn is a great place to meet fellow professionals, exchange ideas, get tips, discover relevant articles and trends, find jobs and join interesting discussions. Public relations is a well represented field on LinkedIn, with many professionals in the network and some really active groups. Here are 10 of our favorite LinkedIn groups for PR pros.
- Innovative Marketing, PR, Sales, Word-of-Mouth & Buzz Innovators by Gerald Haman – as far as I see, this is the largest PR professionals group on LinkedIn with over 205 k members. Since there are so many members, the topics covered are very wide. You’ll see recommendations for free ebooks and interesting articles, as well as discussions on various subjects on marketing/PR and all of the topics included in the group’s name.
