How To Get Ahead Of A Social Media Crisis

No tech company is immune from ending up in a social media crisis these days – especially as our internal company decisions have an outsized impact on our society. In this talk, Nandini Jammi will walk you through some of the biggest social media crises SaaS companies have experienced over the past few years, and how you can prevent them from happening to your business. Nandini will draw on her experience running Sleeping Giants – an activist campaign that convinced advertisers and tech platforms to deplatform white supremacists, conspiracy theorists and other bad actors – to give you a behind-the-scenes look at how these high-profile efforts are formed.

In groups, we will consider real-life challenges like how to manage online harassment, bad actors and consistently enforce your platform’s Terms of Service. You will learn how to lead in times of crisis and – even better – avoid them to begin with.
