PR Open Mic-TOW 9 & 10

PR OpenMic is a social networking site developed by Robert French.  The site is targeted to students who are majoring in PR, professors, PR Professionals and people who work in PR departments. Some of the first things that the site suggests are for you to invite your friends, customize your page, and then begin to add content. Once you join the site you can update your status for others to see. For example if you are looking for an Internship, this is a perfect way to let others know that way anyone who is looking for interns can see that you are obviously interested in PR and can connect with you. There are many applications that PR OpenMic offers for example; you can upload videos or pictures, comment on posts and read the open discussion forum.

PR OpenMic is beneficial to students who are graduating because this site allows for people to post job openings, or internship opportunities. The sites also offers networking and connections to specific people who work or are apart of certain groups on the site.

The part that I find different about this networking site compared to others is the open discussion forum, because you can read and comment on these posts. Where as most networking sites just provide the connections and not really provide a place for people to see your thoughts. The site is similar to Twitter, because you can update your status. In addition the site also similar to LinkedIn, they are bothe sites used for networking and you need to be professional on them.
