Hughes PR, Public relations, Social media

Australian PR/social media blogs

We’ve been reading blogs related to this one for some time now and we’d like to share them with you.

Below is a list of our favourite Australian public relations/social media blogs in alphabetical order.

Our criteria for their inclusion, apart from being Australian and about PR/social media, is that they are current and updated pretty regularly.

It’s also interesting to see if these bloggers use Twitter because people are more likely to interact using Twitter than comment on blogs so Twitter details have also been included. By the way you can follow Hughes PR on Twitter also.
