By Kevin Lo
Damned if you do and damned if you don’t by the sounds of what Kevin Lo has to say. Here he recommends that companies be vigilant about what information finds its way onto SN sites, such as FB. He recommends either banning mention of the company at all, or at the least setting up a policy on what can and can’t be said about a company on a SN site. He suggests that FB is great, but building a company controlled SN site is better.
But Lo here, appears to take the side of the company. He fails to address the question of who has sovereignty – the corporation or the individual. One suspects he believes that, if the company pays the coin, they own the person. That somewhat flies in the face of basic human rights but it appears that commerce continues to seep into every pore of the free speech membrane.
