July 4, 2012 Transcript of #CommsChat on Wikipedia with Philip Sheldrake

This week on #CommsChat, we tackled the issue of Wikipedia, and were joined by Philip Sheldrake, author, partner of Meanwhile and director of Intellect and 6UK, who sat on the CIPR Social Media panel that helped develop the guidance notes recently published by the CIPR.

The topics on Monday included:

– Is there anything intrinsically wrong in allowing PROs to edit Wikipedia pages?
– Does the number of inaccuracies on corporate Wikipedia pages mean that it is no longer fit for purpose?
– Has the historical hostility between Wikipedia and PR led to an irrevocable breakdown between the two camps?
– How can the PR industry rebuild relations with Wikipedians?
– What are the CIPR guidelines and are they the complete solution?
– What recourse should PROs have if changes don’t get made?
