Life as a PR professional and traditional marketer used to be easy. In the old days, public relations was simply a matter of taking our pitches and our dollars to the media gatekeepers. We’d take out an advertisement in the newspaper. We would get a radio spot, get a 30 second spot on television, pay a million bucks for a Superbowl ad, and the gatekeepers would guarantee us access to their audiences.
Social media broke the traditional media model in one fundamental way: traditional media organizations are no longer the gatekeepers of audiences and the arbiters of information. They no longer have a monopoly on what gets seen, heard, or shared. At best, their publication of a story validates a particular piece of information or story. At worst, they are simply redundant.
