“Should Social Media Activities Be A Required Class Assignment”

PR Open mic posed this question to PR students and a not so thrilled Lauren Garcia blogs about why she believe social media should be left out of the public relations curriculum.

I am taking a social media monitoring class so, clearly, social media is a requirement for the course which is completely understandable. However, I have been forced to blog for virtually every PR class I have taken at Georgia Southern University, so I can understand Lauren’s frustrations.

However, while Lauren is limited to participating in social media solely on PR Open mic, my instructor allows us to blog and comment on other people’s blogs as well. This allows for more creative freedom.

Also, I find the writing experience to be incredibly valuable and realistic to the tasks I will be performing in my career.

Read Lauren’s blog and decide for yourself!
