Hillary Clinton uses a blog platform to defend herself, but largely ignores the power of Twitter. Either way, these are tools you can bring to the boardroom. Here’s why
Earlier this month presidential candidate Hillary Clinton launched The Fact Hub, a Web site dedicated to stopping rumors and spin before they get legs. The site has already helped squelch at least one rumor—that Hillary’s team failed to tip at an Iowa diner.
The Fact Hub uses a blogging platform—sans a comments section—to quickly respond to misinformation about the candidate. While these responses are text based, the site includes a video section called “Video Facts.”
At least one social media guru is celebrating this Clinton tactic. Shel Holtz, of the blog a shel of my former self, believes businesses can take a page from Clinton’s playbook. He writes: “Business would be well-served to look at this example and adopt it instead of relying on less effective channels like those stodgy corporate statements we’re so accustomed to issuing.”
