Faux Pas, Phonies and Flub-ups: How to Handle Social Media Spoofs, Goofs and Snafus

#MPD11 Management and Professional Development Track

Room 106B


OMG! There’s a typo in my post and it already has seven likes and a share. UH-OH! Someone created a phony account for our mascot! YIKES! I just tweeted from Happy Hour – on the College’s account. If you’re human (you are, right?), then that means you’re bound to make a mistake. Don’t beat yourself up about it, kid! In this session, Talarico will fess up about a few of her own minor mistakes and then share how she handled them. She’ll also address parody accounts (and E-town's parody and comment policy) and snarky remarks, as well as address, with permission, spoofs and goofs of a few of her peers. All in all, mistakes are learning opportunities—and that’s what this session is all about!
