    I think online PR is already here and here to stay. Today many companies use blogs, both openly and surrreptitiously, to promote their products. Many use social media releases rather then old-style press releases incorporating videos, audio files, RSS feeds, social networking sites, feeds to Twitter sites, bookmarks and aggregators such as Digg. With so many people now online and using web 2.0 tools,this has become the new mass media.
