If you hold a prominent position, whether it is by owning a company, running for political office or you are an entertainer, the more prominent you become, the longer your Internet footprint. This can be great for bringing in new fans and customers, but it also means you need to pay even more attention to what you say and do online. One single post can alienate a large number of your followers and, in the modern world of social media, it can start like wildfire and flow through the trenches of the Internet to all sorts of locations. Once it is sent out, it becomes much more difficult to deal with. You can delete it, but once it is posted it is posted forever. That is why Darius Fisher, founder and CEO of Status Labs, is around to not only assist companies, individuals and organizations with their online habits, but also give out pointers to make sure everyone is properly taken care of and is using appropriate Internet etiquette.
Darius Fisher points out that it is especially important to always double-think and double-check everything before posting it online. It is so easy to send out a tweet, a post or an image update to one version of a social media account. That ease of use is what often gets people into trouble. As the head of a company, Darius Fisher points out it is a good idea to have someone else double-check the best before putting it live. This way, they can have a fresh set of eyes and they can determine whether or not it is a good idea or it should be avoided at all cost.
Once something goes live, what should you do? Well, this is where Status Labs can come into play. Sometimes it is far too difficult for a lone individual to go and try to track down different links and savings of the content. Even if it is posted and deleted, it is going to be saved somewhere. Due to this, it is necessary to have it removed. Status Labs can track it down and clean it up. Follow Darius on Twitter to keep up with news and information.
