Now, heres the question: How real is the digital world? We’ve borne witness to many instances wherein a person got exposed to insults and (virtual) emotional battery over the internet, and a part of us feels violated while another part shrugs off saying, Oh well, so what? Its only through the web. Its not real.
The sad truth is that the results of digital maligning and assaults on online personas extend to the real world. People lose friends caused by a biased judgment given to them. Businesses lose clients – a lot of them go bankrupt – all because of unfair statements issued against them or their goods.
Whether or not you’ll choose to stay quiet or defend yourself or your company is still a choice you must make. You dont need to delay until you are left with just a couple of customers before you’ll protect your reputation. There is certainly something that can be done.
It is not easy to watch after every information that goes to the web about your organization. If it is good or bad, you need to know to be able to preserve the good reputation of your organization. This is the reason why some forms of online reputation management services are required: to air out the other side of the story, to have our facts straightened out, and to have the world to see truth in a more favorable light. Being able to safeguard your organization from malicious intents will surely protect your business.
