Or at a last resort, migrate your web presence to Facebook
The app economy will
Facebook gets mobile
It all gets more visual

More streaming services & visual communities
Social media is an amplifier
Not a flood-gate for bad publicity
People will make ridiculous assertions...
Most people give Feedback, or Suggestions
It's how you reply
how you action feedback
Make or break
"here's a grumpy cat! LIKE or not guys?!"
Social Media. Problem?
What makes it unique?
Respond if its true & easy to resolve
Respond if its completely untrue
Sometimes, you need not respond
Get it offline
And resolve via more appropriate channels
in reaffirming your brand
Don't be rude
Ensure follow up
Measure it all
Start with a Plan
Who is the designated spokesperson?
Are they trained for media relations?
What can other employees say/not say?
What crises have our competition faced?
Who do we want to ally with/avoid in a crisis?
Have a crisis plan in place. Updated & available
Monitor VOC & respond before it gets ugly
Issue a "First Response"
Acknowledge the problem
Remove yourself from the spotlight
Buy time for a response
Reply, resolve & reaffirm
Ask, before you receive.
Solve for x
Use negative feedback to isolate the REAL problem
Never fight a war on two fronts
You can't please everyone
But you can spread the good news
And reward those loyal to you
Compile a risk audit
Loosen communications infrastructure
In a crisis, many organisations tend to react in the following manner:
* Offer statements that are not grounded on all the facts.
* Offer statements that are incomplete, and open them up to more questions
* Fail to communicate with all the necessary audiences (ie. Employees, Suppliers, Investors and the Media) - at the right time.
* React defensively, or try shift the blame to another party, thereby damaging their credibility and trustworthiness.
* Say too much, or; say too little and hope it blows over before any real damage is done
