Social Media Blunders – As Seen from Britain


We’ve previously gone over five of our favorite (relative term here) corporate social media blunders, and you’ve all no doubt seen similar lists all over the Internet.  But what about social media mistakes from a different perspective?  The Telegraph has their own top ten list from a British perspective, and, hilariously, number one is still from an American company, JP Morgan.  A list like this is great, since you can see what blunders were ridiculous enough to stand out from the other side of the ocean, and also become acquainted with a few you probably didn’t hear about in US media.

Here’s their top ten.  Be sure to check out the full article for all of the nitty-gritty HERE, because some of them truly are head-scratching.  Home Depot’s gaffe, in particular, is mind-blowingly offensive.
