An intriguing new communications agency launched at midnight, Halloween night. Led by Eastwick Alumnus Giovanni Rodriguez, HubbubPR aims to create a community for writers, PR professionals, marketing consultants, social media mavens, designers and so on. On his blog, Giovanni describes the community as “Facebook for communications pros”, and goes on to say:
with the advent of social media — blogs, wikis, RSS, podcasting, videocasting — many people in the public relations world can now do what they profess to do — “relate to the public.” The mandate for PR is getting broader, and so has the need to tap people from various, related disciplines.
Open to the public, the community goes live this winter.
