Vocus, the press release people, are sponsoring “Analyzing the Impact of Social Media: From Twitter to Facebook.”

The Webinar is being run by Sarah Evans who has been a guest writer for our pals over at Mashable.

Up for discussion is how to effectively implement and measure the impact of social media programs on PR campaigns.

Also speaking is Elizabeth Friedland, an account executive at TrendyMinds, who will offer case studies on how she has used social media to create a strong buzz for her clients.

Both educational and informational, the Webinar should serve as a resource for organizations looking to gain insight into the best practices for public relations and practical techniques that can be applied to their everyday communications campaigns.
