The Difference Between Transparency and Stupidity
Share

Interesting post from Dave Kerpen about a C-level executive who was recently fired based on years’ worth of racist and misogynistic tweets. The Web 2.0 has made public figures out of all of us, regardless of job title, and we all need to take that responsibility seriously.

Content marketing isn't just a buzzword—it’s the key to reaching today’s sophisticated consumer.

“Content doesn't interrupt, it attracts. And it is attracting advertisers in droves.”Advertising Age, 2/27/12

  • Thanks for commenting, Cendrine and Belinda! I have a feeling we’re just seeing the tip of the iceberg on this issue!

  • The fact that he wasn’t fired earlier says a lot about the society we live in. It’s not about freedom of speech, it’s about the lack of awareness surrounding xenophobia.

  • Freedom of speech is one thing. Proper etiquette is another thing. To be fair, there are far worse demeaning tweets out there, but for a guy like him who carries the name of a large company is a total blowout. What is to gain here? Publicity? Is it all an act to attract support for his new project? Because as far as the internet is concerned, there are definitely people who defend him for that bad stunt. Thanks for sharing the article, Rachel! 🙂
