Strategies for handling negative comments on social media

@AlexKStevens


Congratulations

Congratulations!

You just received your first negative comment on social media…NOW WHAT?


Four step process

Four Step Process

ACKNOWLEDGE

It happens to everyone. Really.

REACT

Think before you push send, but not for too long.

PREVENT

Let’s never do this again, okay?

REFLECT

Maybe they have a point.


Acknowledge

ACKNOWLEDGE

It happens to everyone. Really.

  • Don’t delete!

  • Respond to negative comments on the original feed with a short, conscience, but friendly message.

  • Your acknowledgement will set the tone for what comes next.

    Example: “I’m sorry to hear your concerns. How can I help solve your problem?”


React

REACT

Think before you push send, but not for too long.

  • Don’t feed the trolls.Most comments fall into four categories: business error, a misunderstanding, a negative comment or spam. Don’t waste your time on spam.

  • Slow and steady won’t win this race.A quick response can squash many issues, think INTERNET QUICK. You have hours and minutes to respond, not days or weeks.

  • You can’t fix everything in 140 characters.Always respond publically and continue the discussion on a private channel.

  • Accept the bitter with the sweet. People have a right to complain. Never delete legitimate, civil comments.

  • Own up to your mistakes.We all make mistakes, own them. People appreciate honestly and ownership.


Prevent

PREVENT

Let’s never do this again. Okay?

  • Filters are your friends. Both Facebook and CRM platforms have great filtering tools. In the edit/manage permissions tab on Facebook you can flag words as spam and blacklist profanity. CRM systems such as Wordpress allow you to leave comments pending until approved.

  • Comment at your own risk. High traffic blogs frequently have comment policies. Comment policies allow you to delete comments from violators without repercussions.

  • Just a piece of the puzzle. To properly handle negative comments in the future, consider creating a crisis communications plan.

  • You can’t react to what you don’t see. Consider setting up Google Alerts for your organization’s name as a failsafe method to catching rouge mentions.


Reflect

REFLECT

Maybe the have a point.

A negative comment is valuable feedback in disguise, sometimes.Or sometimes it’s just negative garbage. Take their suggestions and feedback seriously.
