Power Hour: Managing Social Media Firestorms
April 21, 2017 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pmFree
Proactive communication planning today includes a strong focus on crisis communication and management, with comprehensive plans, staff training, media relations protocols and prep for numerous scenarios. If there’s a weak link in the plan, it’s likely to be in the area of social media. When an incident or comment triggers a social media firestorm (from the unexpectedly annoying to a major disruption) are you prepared to manage the fallout and douse the flames? Learn how to establish a social media action plan along with tactics for when or when not to engage and take action, de-escalate commentary and keep your social media platforms working for you.
