It’s important knowledge to share, but what happens when someone else makes the mistakes and you have to fix them?

If you haven’t encountered this already, I bet there will come a time when you have to clean up a company‘s online and social media presence.

Maybe it will be like the situation I just went through with a client. Leadership empowered the interns to own social media and they created a huge mess. This is a classic example, right?
