A2 Digital media – watch what you say! November 20, 2009Posted by N.C.OnlineTraining in Uncategorized.
There’s a great post on this blog which tells the story of a school teacher who posted a comment on a website and was very quickly fired. Great timing for us as this demonstrates just how digital media can actually backfire for some.
We discussed the other day how Citizen Journalism can add to the impact of a news story, and this is an example of how sometimes it can severely backfire. Many people still think of the internet as an anonymous place where anything goes, and this story clearly illustrates that when it comes to contributing to the internet, you must watch your words.
Do any of you have any stories about people who may have got into trouble whilst posting stuff on blogs at work?
