7 Scary Social Media Tales for Halloween


Since today is Halloween, I thought it would be interesting to go back in time to discover 7 memorable scary moments in social media.

  1. Chrysler’s Twitter account accidentally drops the F-Bomb. The happy ending here is that the account gained more followers.
  2. Kenneth Cole’s Tweet to promote his fashion line causes angry reactions.
  3. The Woman who Blasted her former boss on Facebook. In return, she got a pink slip.
  4. Surfing on Facebook while sick.
  5. There is no shortage of stories of folks being fired for blogging. Here’s one:
    I was fired for blogging.
  6. The power of social media is not to be underestimated. Just look to the tale of JcPenney.
  7. The final scary thing of this post. Both Lady Gaga and Justin Bieber probably  have several servers at Twitter soley dedicated to them.

I know there are more scary tales out there. What else should be included on this list? S/O in the comments, Twitter or Facebook, if you dare.  LOL.
