first_imgIT + Project Management: A Love Affair brian proffitt Cognitive Automation is the Immediate Future of… Related Posts Even as more and more companies embace social media for internal and external communication, only a few are actively managing the risk that social media entails. These companies are strolling unprotected through a minefield that might one day destroy a cherished brand or lead angry regulators to their doorstep.According to survey results from the Altimeter Group, nearly “two-thirds of companies surveyed say that social media is a significant or critical risk to their brand reputation.” But 60% of those companies deliver social media training and expectations to their employees only once – upon their hiring – or don’t bother to train their employees about social media at all.That’s a pretty big group, especially since other reports peg the proportion of U.S. companies using some sort of social media at 80%.“Companies are often aware of the risks at some level, but instead of taking specific concrete actions, they cross their fingers and hope that they dodge the bullet,” wrote Alan Webber in the report.With so many companies using social media, and even acknowledging the risk involved with using it to communicate with customers through branding and marketing efforts, why are so many firms not being more proactive about protecting themselves?“The simple answer is that most companies are still enamored with social media and don’t want to admit that there is a risk–simply if we don’t see it, it really isn’t there,” Webber told ReadWriteWeb. “For those that acknowledge the risk, even most of them just assume that they won’t be targeted or what they already have in place if crisis comes is enough.”Assessing the Risks of Social Media It may not be enough, because the risks can be serious and varied. Brand reputation, which topped survey results for concerned risks at 66%, can massively effect a company’s credibility, as Kenneth Cole learned in February 2011 when the company tweeted “Millions are in uproar in #Cairo. Rumor is they heard our new spring collection is now available online at http://bit.ly/KCairo – KC”Then there’s the risk of releasing confidential information. That’s what happened to Gene Morphis, the former CFO at Francesca’s Holdings (a fashion retailer and public company), who was fired in May after tweeting confidential information like “Roadshow completed. Sold $275 million of secondary shares. Earned my pay this week.” on January 27.You don’t even have to originate the poor communications to be at fault, either. In 2011, the Australian Competition & Consumer Commission found Allergy  Pathway Pty Ltd. at fault for misleading comments fans on its Facebook page and Twitter made about the company’s products. Even thoughAllergy Pathway didn’t actually make the false statements, the Commission fined the company for not correcting them after the fact.The risk of hijacking is also a real problem, as Shell Oil discovered to its dismay this summer when it tried to launch the now-infamous “Let’s Go” ads, only to find social media-distributed mock ads proliferating the Internet like wildfire and a fake Shell Twitter account broadcasting mock threats to perpetrators. McDonald’s found itself in similar straits back in January when its #McDStories Twitter campaign was tweetjacked with embarrassing stories about the restaurant chain instead of the wholesome, fun stories it seemed to be seeking.Dealing with the Risks of Social MediaAltimeter’s report emphasized that all the risks must be identified before a company can properly manage them. And resource dedication must be a part of that management plan. The survey identified 43% of respondents having less than one full-time-equivalent staffer dedicated to managing social media risk.The report urges companies to start taking social media a lot more seriously, even following IBM’s example by making social media a board-level issue. A good place to start is to watch and learn from other companies’ mistakes and successes in dealing with social media crises, and learn from your own company’s past mistakes, as well. Once your social media responses are in place, test them through exercises or even full “war games” to see how the plan works.Ignoring the risks of social media is a dangerous game. The real question is when, not if, a social media storm will threaten your company.Images courtesy of Shutterstock.

first_imgEngland cricket coach Andy Flower wants his Ashes victors to refocus for the fifth Test in Sydney and finish the tour on a winning note, and not to believe that his team can’t accomplish more.Speaking a day after England completed an innings and 157-run win in the fourth Test to ensure it holds the Ashes, Flower said on Thursday that “it’s far too early to feel satisfied.”England lead the series 2-1, marking the first time since the 1986-87 season that they have retained the Ashes in Australia. The fifth Test begins Monday.Flower said the celebrations in the Melbourne Cricket Ground changerooms on Wednesday were memorable and noted some players were “conspicuous by their absence” for breakfast on Thursday morning at the team hotel.”But we also will realize there’s a lot of cricket ahead on this tour and there’s a lot of cricket left to be played in this fifth test,” Flower said. “We came out here to win the series and we’ll be doing everything we can to do that.”He said the Ashes was one step in a long-term ambition of winning the limited-overs World Cup beginning in February and becoming the world’s No. 1 Test team.”There are a lot of things out there for us to aim for,” Flower said.The team had the day off on Thursday after wrapping up the Melbourne Test in four days.”They can enjoy each other’s success and each other’s company for a little period of time in the sanctuary of the dressing room and the families joined us for a short time,” Flower said.advertisement”I know the guys enjoyed having their loved ones around them, too, to share it with. We celebrated yesterday and it’s time to move on now.”last_img read more
