  1. Hi R.L. A colleague of mine forwarded me your awesome post on the Applebees social media meltdown (we both manage our comany’s social media strategy and presence). GREAT case study! Just wanted to say “thanks.” This is something I will use as proof of certain strategies I support (i.e. open comments, never deleting, etc.), in case of a PR nightmare.

    After reading your post, I poked through your blog and just subscribed. I’m a former newspaper reporter myself, so I always enjoy meeting other journalists and writers here on the blogosphere.
