Goodbye From PROpenMic


Allow me to thank all of you that joined and shared in our social network experiment for public relations students, faculty and professionals. Students accounted for the vast majority of our members, but we also had a strong showing from faculty (500+) and PR professionals (2,800+). We had members from 100 countries and at least one member (or post) from every continent.

PROpenMic went live on March 30, 2008 at 8:30pm. It has been an enjoyable seven years. Thank you all for your support.

The site has run its course, in my opinion. Traffic is low. That is understandable given all the alternative options available today.

So, I have made the decision to close the site. Our next billing is due at the end of the week and I just can’t justify another $600 annual payment to for the service.

The site will go dark just before midnight on Thursday, August 20, 2015.

If you wish to save any of your information, please go login and copy / download away.

I hope the site served a positive purpose. If there is any higher education group that would like to take the site over, I will gladly consider that … but I think this one has run its course.

Thank you.
