The Public Relations in Practice survey suggests the left brain/right brain, art/science battle is alive and well, especially when it comes to adopting new media relations tools

Vocus, Inc., (NASDAQ: VOCS) a leading provider of on-demand software for public relations management, today announced that it will sponsor a free webinar on its new survey exploring the current use of technology to gain a strategic advantage in the PR industry. Titled "The Changing World of Public Relations," the webinar will be held on Thursday, July 26, 2007 at 2:00pm ET. To register for the webinar, please visit http://301url.com/releaserl.

Led by Stephen Quigley, associate professor with Boston University's renowned College of Communications, the webinar will examine the findings of Vocus' survey "Public Relations in Practice," showing that the PR industry is in the early stages of adopting technology. The webinar will provide a benchmark on current PR methods and tips on leveraging the latest technologies to manage and track media relations effort for PR success.

"The Public Relations in Practice survey suggests the left brain/right brain, art/science battle is alive and well, especially when it comes to adopting new media relations tools," said Professor Quigley. "Two out of three respondents regard ongoing tracking, analysis and measuring media as critical, yet many still rely on old technology -- or no technology -- to get the job done."

"Public Relations in Practice" offers insight from more than 700 PR professionals on the fundamental shift in the media landscape and its impact on the public relations industry.
