As Mass Media Crumbles Marketers Get Personal

According to PR Week, Coca-Cola has created a new office of digital communications and social media within its public affairs and communications department.
Clyde Tuggle, SVP of corporate affairs and productivity at Coke, noted “mass media is declining in importance,” when introducing the new department in a memo to staff, which the beverage manufacturer shared with PRWeek.
“Our future success depends on our continued ability to connect people to our brands and our Company all around the world, one person at a time,” Tuggle wrote.
