Update: Nike’s Epic Fail

Posted: April 9, 2011 in Facebook, Social Media

This is a follow-up to my April 5th post . . .

faux pas/fō ˈpä/ Noun: An embarrassing or tactless act or remark in a social situation.

Nike Golf has now committed the ultimate Social Media faux pas, they have made a decision to try to control fan feedback on their page. They have hand-picked unflattering comments and have deleted them. Perhaps even more incredible, the page administrator dumped me as a fan (and perhaps others). Though I have since re-“Liked” the Nike Golf page (after all, I have a Nike Staff Bag filled with Nike clubs), I have now been blocked from commenting on their page.

You Nike guys really don’t get Social Media, do you?
