social-networking gatherings

For those of you who aren’t familiar with it, #PRStudChat is a live chat session onTwitter between public relations students, practicing professionals, and educators. Held every month, the chat sessions are meant to be a way to educate PR students while directly connecting them with PR professionals.

Conversations are held in real time by using the hashtag #PRStudChat.

Note: For those who are new to the hashtag, a hashtag is simply prefixing a word with a hash symbol (#). By using a hashtag, tweeters can connect to the conversation and search for the hashtag to see previous tweets pertaining the given hashtag.

However, if you want to be able to read the conversations at a decent pace, you should use TweetChat instead of Twitter, as Twitter’s server can’t seem to keep up with the amount of tweets.

At the helm of #PRStudChat is moderator Deirdre Breackenridge, four-time author and president of PFS Marketwyse, and host Valerie Simon, Senior Vice President,BurrellesLuce, media monitoring and measurement.

Participants are given questions in the form of  Q1, Q2, etc. To respond to a question, put the Q & number in front your tweet so others know which response pertains to which Q.
