Although our blog has seen numerous social media marketing “lists” by this point in the semester, I just came across another one that I thought was worth sharing. Business Insider has compiled a list of this year’s biggest social media marketing blunders and just released it this afternoon. While a few of the “fails” were made by questionable businesses, a majority were committed by well-established, noteworthy companies, such as Home Depot, JP Morgan, and Pepsi. Whether the blunders were racially offensive in nature or just completely insensitive, what they all have in common is that the individuals who committed them simply did not think before posting. I found this article to be extremely shocking and think it emphasizes how dangerous social media can be if companies do not carefully consider the consequences of the content they post.
