Social networks are regularly used by companies for publicity, it’s usually an efficient system, however sometimes it turns in damaging publicity, we can see two similar examples in this text "A tale of two airlines and their facebook fiasco".

The first one is about Virgin Atlantic, on October 31 the company dismissed 13 crew members because they had been writing derogatory comments on Facebook, and they talked about the safety standards and about many passengers. In addition to this, British Airways discovered that some employers had described some passengers with awful adjectives and started to investigate them.
These two problems make us think if those companies have clarified the way staff can use Internet. Managers need to control online activity to be sure that rules are respected.

Finally it’s known public-relations (PR) recommend companies to be careful about these social networks, and to look for the gossip points because prevention is better than cure.
