The Institute for Public Relations Wants Your Best Social Media Studies

Got research? Enjoy a little healthy competition? Last week, the Institute for Public Relations issued a challenge to PR pros well-versed in social media practices: choose the tenth study in the organization’s “Top 10 Social Media Articles Important to Public Relations from the First Half of 2013” list.

Everyone likes research, and based on the email pitches we receive every day we can guarantee you that there’s no shortage of social media analysis (or related infographics) floating around.

So far the list includes everything from Edelman‘s Global Entertainment Study to general studies on marketing practices and Pew‘s latest social demographics report. PR pros from firms like Weber Shandwick and Ogilvy have already nominated their own studies in the comments. Do you have another to share?
