Social media has given companies unprecedented access to their target audience. Not only are they able to provide a way for customers to see what is going on with their business but they can catch negative or positive feedback through live monitoring of sites like Twitter.
This also presents an issue – stories that they were once able to quietly take care of (or ignore) can now take on a life of their own. Through the Internet, an incident either large or small can escalate until it threatens the reputation of a company that is left scrambling to fix things.
Below are four examples of how different major franchises tried to put out the flames that were sparked through social media during times of crisis.
Back in 2010, a video was launched by nonprofit Greenpeace about Nestle’s sourcing of a company known as Sinar Mas. For those that don’t know, Sinar Mas is the largest palm oil producer in Indonesia. It has been alleged to be responsible for mass deforestation that resulted in both the endangerment of natural species and the destruction of a number of communities.
The video targeted Nestle for its financial support of this company, which is also known to use cheap labor to create its product. Not taking into account the open and viral nature of social media, it did not launch an effort to deal with the problem in a constructive way. Nestle didn’t speak to their customers or Greenpeace or even pretend to consider the issue. Instead, it contacted Google and asked the Internet giant to remove the video from search results and the original YouTube clip.

With practically everyone and their cat writing a blog these days, you need to distinguish yourself to get noticed. That can be difficult sometimes, but certainly not impossible. Keep reading for some tips to give your blog a better chance of getting found and read.
This article picks up on where I left off in a previous article. In that piece, I covered the importance of creating a great headline, explained how linking to older posts can help you, and why you should link to other bloggers. I also touched on details such as filling in your page title and description, creating URLs that look good in social media, and attracting and keeping an audience by blogging more than once a month.
That may sound like a lot, but there's always more to learn. Neil Patel introduces these points in the form a negative – “don't do this” – but I prefer phrasing them in a positive way. I believe you'll remember them better if you're told what to do up front rather than what to avoid.
I'll start these new tips off by talking about how you write your post. The phrase “keep it simple” never applied to anything like it applies to the web. For all the images and videos you may find online, much of the most valuable web content comes in the form of text. Unfortunately, most people reading on the Internet have short attention spans. There's always the distraction of something else to click, checking Facebook or Twitter, and the fact that an electronic display still isn't as easy on the eyes as words on paper – especially if your visitors are reading your words of wisdom from a small mobile device….More at More Ways to Get Attention For Your Blog
