Hey there PR fans, Iona here bringing you what's hot and what's not in the PR world on this hot and sunny* October Wednesday. *Grey and gloomy.
Facebook gets today's Good PR accolade,as the news has come out that shares in the company have risen by 22%. Their shares look et to be the best ever, after signs that the site can make money from its mobile users sparked a buying frenzy.
The shares soared 22.3pc - or $4.34 - to $23.84 at the start of trading on Wall Street today, after last night revealing that they had seen a faster growth in mobile advertising revenues than they had expected. Adverts on mobile devices accounted for 14pc of the $1.09bn in advertising revenues that Facebook made in the third quarter of this year.
This comes as good news for Facebook founder and owner Mark Zuckerburg, as he has been under pressure to convince investors that it can generate profits from the more than 600m people who access their Facebook page on mobile devices.
Bad PR today goes to social gaming company Zynga, who reportedly laid off more than 100 members of staff during last night's Apple conference, during which the technology giant launched the hotly anticipated iPad mini.
Those that were let go and ordered to turn in their computers, phones, and badges — many of whom have been working at the company for more than two years- and were given two hours to vacate their office.
The surprise announcement happened when the majority of the world's media had their attention focussed on Apple's announcement. Talk about trying to bury bad news. Poor form from Zynga.

One for the sports fans today, as Good PR goes to Wales rugby coach Warren Gatland, who has been awarded the role of head coach of the British and Irish Lions, who are due to tour Australia next summer. Gatland was hotly tipped for the role, so no big surprise that he bagged the job, but congratulations nonetheless!
Gatland was an assistant to Ian McGeechan during the 2009 tour to South Africa, has been handed the task of guiding the Lions to their first series win in 16 years, so the pressure's on.
The Lions will play nine games during the month-long tour of Australia, including tests in Brisbane, Melbourne and Sydney, as well as a one-off warm up match against the Barbarians in Hong Kong to kick it off.
Bad PR today goes to organic food, as a new US study has suggested that it is no better for you than non-organic foods. Researchers have apparently said that organic produce and meat is no better than conventional food when it comes to vitamin and nutrient content.
The study reviewed more than 200 studies that compared either the health of people who ate organic or conventional foods or, more commonly, nutrient and contaminant levels in the foods themselves. The foods included organic and non-organic fruits, vegetables, grains, meat, poultry eggs and milk. However, organic food does generally reduce exposure to pesticides and antibiotic-resistant bacteria
