As you write content (blog posts, stories, and social media posts) with links to external websites, you don’t want long and awkward-looking URLs within your text. Those URLs don’t have to stick out like a sore thumb – you can replace them with anchor text, which is clickable text like this link to our homepage.

Something PR professionals and social media have in common is they are both based on communication. However, social media has grown tremendously since it was first introduced because of its ability to connect people with information quickly. While the speed at which social media can produce a message can cause harm, it can also benefit PR with its “real-time messaging.” This can amplify the results of news/press releases, emails, blog posts, and other PR means. In an instant, social media can show a larger audience the content you create while also helping it last longer.
Companies have news that consumers aren’t going to like
Not all news a company shares will be perceived as positive or beneficial to the target audiences.

A social media policy is an outline for how employees should conduct themselves online — both personally and professionally. When done right, social media policies set employees up for success and help companies curb issues with security, reputation, and the law.

Some of these key principles cover affiliation disclosure, do’s and don'ts of sharing information, and security protocols. After reading a social media policy, an employee should know what’s expected of them and recognize that both they and the company will be held responsible for their actions online. The permanence of social media posts isn’t to be taken lightly.
