The comprehensive article is titled "Social Influence: Thriving in a New World of Media Relations," and is available for complimentary download. (no registration required).
While focused on the human resources media market, the article reflects the transformation of B2B media taking place worldwide. As the media pendulum swings from print to online, the explosion of social media conversation is cascading into a supernova of online noise.

- The need to join online conversations
- Brand visibility through content marketing
- How media analytics tools cut through the noise
