Social Media Horror Stories
In this age of all things social media, it is impossible for everything to be perfect. Whether it be an internal slip-up, trolling fans, or a simple typo, everyone has combatted their own social media horror.
On the heels of Halloween, please join Social Media Club Los Angeles in a discussion of horror stories – social media horror stories! We will explore some case studies and options for managing an online crisis and remerging with flying colors. We have assembled a panel of social media champions – people who have faced the terror and come out unscathed on the other side.
