As she claims, technology is constantly changing the way society communicates and as a result, PR professionals need to adapt to these changes and take advantage of the technological affordances provided through social media. Throughout the book, Breakenridge highlights three main strategies in order to master the web; new research methods, policy development, and public participation. Breakenridge highlights 8 positions a company should take in order to be an expert in the world of social media.

Breakenridge’s suggestions seemed obvious and repetitive. Anna Dutkowsky similarly said, “although this book has been organized into eight separate sections pertaining to different skill sets, ULTIMATELY they all bleed into each other and the content can get repetitive”.  This led our group #d2i to an important conversation regarding audience.
