How do I handle an online reputation crisis?
First, Breathe. You are not your worst mistake. You are in the middle of the storm and there is thunder and lightning all around. You can’t see very far ahead and it’s raining. A perfect storm.
Next, Listen. This is the hardest part. People can be incredibly cruel, hateful and hurtful online.
Learn. I think our biggest mistakes can be our best lessons. From this traumatic experience of being on the receiving end of cancel culture, we can learn to be a better person, more understanding, more forgiving, and emerge a better, more professional employee or executive.
Take action. After an appropriate time of introspection and self-improvement you can start to change the narrative. Charity, philanthropy, religion, writing a blog, starting a new business venture can all be proactive ways to turn things around.
Is reputation repair possible after an online crisis?
Absolutely. We have this strange fascination with tearing people down and watching people self-destruct, but we also love the comeback story. It’s an amazing irony.
For ordinary people, when we a mistake, we don’t have to worry about flashing cameras wherever we go. We have the chance, if not to turn back the clock, to at least turn the page. There are more online reputation services available than ever before.
It is possible to repair a damaged reputation, but it will definitely take work.
Can Reputation Rhino delete information online?
We regularly work with clients who are seeking to reduce the visibility of personal information online. We have been VERY successful removing negative content and private and personal information from Google (including Google Images), Bing, Yahoo, and more.
European residents, under a privacy ruling known as the “Right to be Forgotten” can request that Google, Bing, Yahoo, and other search engines delist URLs that may contain “inaccurate, inadequate, irrelevant, or excessive” information.
Can Reputation Rhino remove revenge porn?
Yes! The distribution of pornography or similar images or videos to harass, humiliate, or intimidate that individual is one of the most destructive online crimes anyone can commit today. Thankfully, state legislatures are taking aggressive action to criminalize this activity. However, we find that images are often hosted overseas and duplicated across many Websites — magnifying the damage and making removal very difficult to enforce.
Reputation Rhino is a leader in revenge porn removal. In addition to removal directly from the pornography Websites, we have successfully removed images from Google, Bing, Yahoo, Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Tumblr and more.
Can Reputation Rhino help protect my online privacy?
Yes! It’s never been easier for someone to find out who you are – your best and worst moments are saved online. There is an abundance of information out there about everyone — and it is only growing. Practically any document a person submits to the government is a public record. This means that anyone can see a variety of files containing potentially sensitive information. Everything from political campaign contributions, real estate purchase and sale prices, divorce details, criminal history and sex offender status are visible online.
Over the past several years, it has become easier to access this information, as many federal and state agencies publish public records on the Internet through searchable databases. This information is often republished or made available by data aggregators. Users can easily go online, find, and download this information.
Social media has made opportunities for overexposure even greater. Its usage has exploded in recent years – a report by Pew Research Center indicates that 72% of U.S. adults use social networking websites, up from 46% in 2010 and just 7% in 2005. The number is highest for young adults – over 90% of people age 18 to 29 use social media. Usage among those age 65 and older has more than tripled since 2010, from 11% to 40% and growing.
Users have the ability to control much of the information presented on social media sites. However, privacy features are changing rapidly and people are struggling to keep up with and fully understand the impact of the various privacy settings now available. Social media users are sharing more and more information. For example, a study by Carnegie Mellon University found that on Facebook, the number of disclosures of personal details (e.g., hometown, high school, and interests) had risen significantly from prior years.
Even if people make their profiles private, others can gain access to their information through mutual friends. The bigger the network, the more opportunities there are for this exposure to occur. This has made it much easier for strangers to learn personal things about individuals, observe others’ views about sensitive topics, share these insights, and form an opinion.
Online reputations have never been more vulnerable. And this is a major cause for concern because, like it or not — the way people perceive you online matters.
