How The Public Relations Industry Should Use Wikipedia
Within the public relations industry there has been extensive discussion about Wikipedia and how it should be used. The Public Relations Society of America (PRSA) on December 6th is hosting an online webinar about Wikipedia’s rules for PR, a “Corporate Communications and Financial Communications Brown Bag Discussion.” More information is available on the PRSA Website.
Wikipedia is one of the most popular websites in the world, and is likely one of the first places people look when seeking information about companies. A recent study found that 60 percent of professional communicators who were familiar with the Wikipedia article about their company or client said it contained factual errors.
PRSA states that “In this teleseminar you’ll learn why Wikipedia is increasingly an important contributor to corporate perceptions, the process for engaging Wikipedia ethically when inaccurate information is posted about your company, and the rules you need to play by to avoid leaving your company’s reputation at risk.”
