Coming at you live from Anchorspace, we set up today’s Tech Thursday talk show style to talk about managing online reputation. Topics include: “So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed” and the Reply All podcast, our thoughts on “We Serve Everyone” (wait for Kassie’s truth bomb), and making Google results look more like you want them to are all covered. In terms of preventing an online fiasco, remember to pause and ask if it’s truly a good idea (or if it’s potentially harmful to someone else). If you’re giving an apology later on, make sure it’s sincere. People can tell if you’re just going through the motions, and there’s nothing worse than an “I’m sorry you feel that way” apology.
We’re thinking this might be our new Tech Thursday arrangement, but we’ll probably trade chairs (the brown chair is SO comfy).
