The internet offers an unrivalled platform for freedom of expression, promotion and public relations.
By the same merits, this freedom can sometimes result in individuals finding themselves unjustly subject to online activity, that can harm their reputation and image.
This is especially true, if they have a high-profile public status, or hold considerable power and influence in the business world.
You don’t have to look far to find examples of celebrities or politicians, suddenly finding themselves at the centre of a character assassination, due to something posted online.
Controversy can spread like wildfire
What might start out as a minor remark on Twitter can be taken out of context and misinterpreted, having long-lasting consequences.
Even if you publicly apologise for what you have said, it may be too late, because it will have taken on a life of its own.
Controversy spreads like wildfire, and you can quickly feel the full impact of the crowd weighing in against you. It may also spill over onto mainstream media channels, causing further reputational damage.
