PHOENIX, Ariz., Aug. 19, 2014 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via PRWEB - The need of a reputation rescue is often the result of something that was said or done by a person and then spread publicly online. A blog posting or brief comment on a popular website might seem innocent to some, but it can create a firestorm if it is interpreted in a negative way. This is especially true on social media accounts. In a short amount of time, the topic can begin to trend and rapidly reach large numbers of viewers. If the posted material is considered offensive or insensitive, the person or group who put it on the Internet can be held responsible. This is why there must always be accountability whenever releasing anything online no matter where it appears. Whether or not it was the intention to create any outrage, this and other factors must be considered before making a final commitment to putting something online.
Internet reputation management begins with taking responsibility. This includes considering the future and possible outcomes of anything that is posted. In regards to online content, many backlashes that have come from unpopular postings were the result of individuals that neglected to think things through ahead of time. During periods of controversy, adding personal commentary can easily turn into a reputation nightmare. If there is a strong chance that a comment will be deemed as insensitive or completely inappropriate, it is likely a wise option to keep such opinions private. It is not worth the risk of damaging a reputation over something as silly as a Tweet.
Reputation Maxx founder and CEO Walter Halicki says, "It is important to know when to post online. Specifically, posting online should be avoided if you are upset or intoxicated because that's asking for trouble."
Maintaining sound judgment is one of the key defenses people possess to avoid developing or escalating issues publicly. When postings do create negative responses, fixing them can be a long and difficult process. This is because large populations can be exposed to the material online, which can be more difficult to forget about even as time passes.
