I've recently joined PROpenMic.

The fun (or perhaps terrifying) part of social media is becoming part of the online community - participating and learning through experience, rather than theoretical babble. The building of a community and those to engage in conversations with involves more than just the odd few comments - it's tracking whats happening in the blogosphere. In this light, it's great to become part of a new network that is growing more and more everyday.

Another wonderful thing about this site is all the connections I'm making with public relations professionals and students from around the world. The opportunity to not only discuss things in the forums - but to add more friends on twitter is great - especially for someone that is relatively new to the whole online scene.

Even Dr James E. Grunig is a member - someone who we referenced and discussed in university has joined - clearly a sign for new students to jump on the bandwagon and find a funky profile picture.
