Default New Article - When Social Media Attacks The Wrong Person

Authored by: Jennifer Laycock

Full Text: http://www.searchengineguide.com/laycock/010554.html

A Snippet:

It's no secret that the pack mentality that often powers social media success can also turn into an angry mob complete with virtual pitchforks at the drop of a hat. That's great when the mob is helping to bring social injustice to light, but it's a nightmare when the mob attacks the victim. Unfortunately, the murky waters of Internet gossip and the fuzzy ethics that seem to rule online behavior can make it difficult to know who the victim actually is.

Default Unbelievable

Nice work on this story. To be honest, I can't believe the first two comments you had! I don't quite see the "responsible student" angle. If, in fact, the store manager gave approval for that, he should be let go as well.

Yes, the A&P should drop the useless lawsuit. They'll spend more on legal fees than they will ever recover.

Bottom line is that if any of us deface our company's brand and/or products on the company's premise, we'd be let go in an instant. That should also apply to teenage employees.

Expressing creativity is one thing, but causing damage to a business with that creativity is another.
