This presentation deals with the challenges faced by communications professionals by the rise of Web 2.0 sites such as YouTube, Facebook, MySpace and Wikipedia. It is argued that we are moving from the 20th century one-to-many, top-down mass communications model towards a 21st century communications model that is more open, interactive, multidimensional and participatory, but presents new challenges for business, government and organisations more generally.

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
