What are the stages of Social Media Crises and which one of these stages is your business currently in?
Stages of a Social Media Crisis
|I||No Current Threats||There are no current threats or potential threats online or offline. This is the best time to create a Social Media Crisis Plan.|
|II||Because of the nature of your business you are in, you are in a constant state of alert||Because of the industry you're in, it's inevitable that a crisis will happen. Example: You're in the railroad industry. The chances that a train derailment in the future is a certainty. Not having a Social Media Crisis plan is not an option.|
|III||A minor Social Media Crisis is happening right now||You had a few negative comments which is a little out of the ordinary. No need to sound the alarm just yet because it might be an isolated incident. With proper training and planning you will be able to contain the crisis before it becomes a larger issue.|
|IV||Imminent Social Media Crisis||A Social Media Crisis is within days, hours or even minutes from happening.
