Just today my dear wife published on her facebook page a caring post, about a mis conduct of an insurance company in regards to a child hurt in a car accident. Like many of these re-posts, it included some horror inhumane facts about the company. Unlike most people, she took the trouble and contacted the company.
Guess what…. -for some unknown reason, someone started a fire, but there was nothing behind it ! It’s merely a lie, no dispute, no story. Just a post that is calling for a re-share, touching the hearts of many, for nothing.
It made me wonder – can is this a new use of our platform ? If you add a short live broadcast to your message, you get a few things:
- People know you actually said something
- The time of broadcast is authentic.
- The location may be exposed as well
So, if it is an urban legend, we’ll know where it started any by who….I guess most people won’t do that.
But if you did broadcast, you gain credibility, personal touch, and relevance.
Just a thought….
