How Disinformation
Can Impact Your Brand

Today more than ever, consumers put their faith in brands to stand for something. But, with this faith comes higher expectations. Disinformation poses one of the largest potential inhibitors of trust, and therefore can damage a businesses bottom line.

Loss of control in your brand image and story

On Twitter alone, false viral stories are 70 percent more likely to be retweeted than true stories. And, we know those stories travel 10x faster in times of crisis. This means consumer trust can be lost that has taken potentially years to build.
