Public Relations in the Age of Social Media with TikTok Satirist ColorMeLoverly
Manage episode 355962989 series 2756647
TikTok has knocked down the wall between public figures and their audiences, putting celebrities and high profile individuals in closer contact than ever before. Inspired by the Harry and Megan interview with Oprah Winfrey, ColorMeLoverly has blown up on TikTok for her comedic and relatable takes on the public relations field and the irony of this new transparent communication.
Public relations TikTok accounts are few and far between when compared to news accounts, something Clara has properly taken advantage of. Her personal know-how of pop culture, the current social media buzz, and awareness of what’s going on in the news culminates into the Tik Toks that she feels are the most relatable.
In this episode, Fred talks with Clara about just how truthful her TikTok videos are and the ever more relevant role of public relations professionals today as they have to transverse the growing importance of social media.
