Let me tell you a story…
A bored mother named Karen was alone in her house, watching TV.
After a while, she took her smartphone and start scrolling on Facebook, until something caught her attention.
She suddenly stopped: on a Facebook post there was a picture of a person she didn’t like.
Without much thought, she wrote an inappropriate comment about that person under the addressed post.
She didn’t know at the time, but what she just did was going to strongly affect her next days.
In fact, Karen didn’t know that for the Italian law she just committed a crime on Facebook.
When Karen then received an official communication from the prosecutor, she decided to call me.
We had to fight hard, we had to propose a settlement compensation to close the matter in the least painful way for her.
I have been next to Karen for the whole time, and, eventually, she didn’t go to jail.
The last time I talk to her, she told me she was going to teach to her daughter how to value the communication on social network, and this made my day.
Never underestimate the weight of your words in your life, including your social network life.
