This week, I created a profile at propenmic.org. PR Open Mic reminds me a lot of Facebook, in that you can create a profile, upload pictures, add friends, and network through the site. It also lets you update a status like Facebook or Twitter. I would describe PR Open Mic as a Facebook for PR professionals. To use the site, you can either be a PR student, teacher, or practitioner. One of the coolest parts of the website for me was the chance to look at internships and jobs in PR. There are also forums and places to post videos and other things letting other people in PR know what you or your company or school is up to. The blogs are also useful and are even places I can go to for my PR Connections for this class. All in all, I find that propenmic.org will be a great tool for me as both a PR student and and eventually as a PR practitioner myself.
