Join Richard Harrington for an in-depth discussion in this video Protecting your reputation, part of Social Media for Photo and Video Pros (2013).
So it's time to protect your reputation online.…Obviously, you want to be smart.…Don't say rude things, don't say something you're going to regret.…But even if you're smart, bad things can happen.…You want to be mindful of what you're putting out there and from time to time think about it and reflect.…Let's take a look at an example here of the President of the United States.…Now if you look for Barack Obama, he has multiple pages on Facebook, different pages for different…interest and they all look pretty official.…
But what you need to realize is some of them aren't.…This is a spoof page and while it looks official at first, …you quickly realize that Barack Obama is probably not lobbying to have his face added to Mount Rushmore.…And some pages are more popular than others, which ones are official, which are just fans,…which are people who are using your content without your permission?…Now, most of you don't have the goal of being the President one day, …but we can all learn something from the President and that is transparency.…
