Crisis management at its yummiest!

By if-admin | August 21, 2014

Ever since my first day here at immediate future I have taken a real interest in social media crisis management.

Over the last year I have kept an eye out for these stories, as “how do brands deal with a social media crisis?” is a very common question.

It really does depend on the situation, customer and brand. BUT, one thing that always seems to stand out as a winner is to make sure you get the brand’s personality across and not to panic!
