Corporate Social Responsibility and Social Media Websites
28/01/2014 23:49 / Leave a comment
Corporate social responsibility might no longer be a term that refers to saving the rain forest or to paying coffee farmers a minimum wage. It could soon mean much more.
Social media users are like the coffee farmers but only in the sense that they work extremely hard in return for very little. Social media users work for the social media corporation by producing never-ending internet content and by falsifying friendship and relationships. Social media users dance and sing before their masters and often strip themselves off the rights to privacy and basic dignity. Social media sites will not exist without the hard labour of users in the same way that coffee chains will not survive without an army of coffee farmers.

Lord Rennard possible grounds for legal action against the Liberal Democrats Party
22/01/2014 01:04 / Leave a comment
Lord Rennard’s lawyers are still considering grounds for legal action against the Liberal Democrats Party following his suspension from the party and the announcement that a second investigation into his conduct is to commence.
The lawyers are expected to have an interesting time preparing their case. There are plenty of evidence and good legal material to play with. Professionally, they are like kids in a toy shop.
So has Lord Rennard got a reasonably good case? It seems he has.
So on what grounds may Lord Rennard win a judicial review?
Under UK law, there are only three circumstances where a Court might declare administrative decisions unlawful. Read more on Lord Rennard legal case here

All You Need To Know About Fake Online Reviews
01/12/2013 17:51 / Leave a comment
Should You Care About Online Reviews? Certainly you should, particularly if you have a business and if the reviews are fake and not in your favour. .
I have identified 7 different categories of fake online reviews. Each of these categories is unique and should be approached and dealt with differently.
Fake online reviews by competitors, fake online reviews by disgruntled customers, fake online reviews by ex-employees, fake online reviews by former business partners, fake online reviews by suppliers, fake online reviews just for fun! and the last category – defamation on forums.
Read about each of these categories of fake online reviews on the website I dedicated for this purpose.

One day, out of the blue, I received an urgent telephone call from a woman who complained that she was being harassed on the internet.
As the conversation progressed it started to become clear, that the harassment and bullying of which she claimed she was the target of, was being carried out against her IN HER SECOND LIFE CHARACTER…

Why online reviewers need to watch their backs (not from the lawyers)

Have you ever left an online review? If you have, then this article
will interest you.
Recently I came across a few cases where people who left a review
following a purchase from Amazon Market Place, ended up being
bullied, harassed and trolled by what appeared to be an organised
network of Amazon vendors.
In one instant a man who left a review following his
dissatisfaction with the return policy of the vendor, received over
130 posts responding to his review, many of which were derogatory,
insulting and to be frank outrageous.
He was being ridiculed and embarrassed and even his home address
was placed on the discussion forum. The assault went on for a
number of days before Amazon agreed to remove some of the offending
comments. However, these were replaced by more cruel and vicious
attacks on the buyer.
Is this a new trend? I hope not.
I will keep an eye on this issue. If you have had a similar
experience after you left an online review, I would love to hear

Social Media Solicitor. Defamation on the Internet: Social Media Solicitor.
On the internet, bad reputation both stinks and sticks. Once a customer’s bad experience becomes viral, traces of it might follow your organisation for years to come, and the story might be resurrected just when you feel that it has gone away forever more.
Five, six or ten years ago, companies that delivered terrible customer experience could have perhaps be forgiven for not realising that the internet had the tendency of tattooing certain stories in the minds of millions of people who will in turn never forgive or forget.
Today however, there is no longer an excuse….Read more on Social Media and reputation lawyer’s blog
