Social media is unpredictable. A crisis is always just one comment away.    

The Challenge: Social Media Crisis Unleashed 

Negative word of mouth damages trust in products, sullies a brand’s reputation and directly impacts revenues. In the always-on social sphere, a single negative comment can trigger a chain reaction, leading to a full-blown social media crisis. Negativity spreads at a faster pace than positivity, and these incidents never occur at convenient times.  

Key Challenges:

  • Rapid Spread of Negativity: Negative comments can quickly gain traction, potentially causing significant harm to a brand’s image. 
  • Inconvenient Timing: Social media crises never happen at a “good time”.  
  • Trust and Revenue Impact: The fallout from negative word of mouth directly impacts trust in products and services, leading to potential revenue losses.
