Social media has transformed the way we live; it’s democratic, unpredictable, exhilarating. And of course, it’s those very qualities that make it susceptible to ugliness at times.

The organizations that succeed in this sometimes-frenetic environment are generally those who display a commitment to stay on top of this ever-evolving world. They maintain a constant presence. They engage in dialogue, and do it in a human voice. They use the platforms to add value for citizens at key moments.

But even organizations with the strongest online presence have met pitfalls on social media. A lack of control over the material that appears alongside their messages can threaten a brands’ reputation, through no fault of their own.

This isn’t an easy problem for government departments to resolve. Action over fake news, aggressive dialogue and compromised safety needs to be balanced with the need to maintain freedom of speech – and the dynamism that makes social media so popular. Brands need to be sure of the company they keep. That means choosing platforms where content will be easy to view, and not vulnerable to fraud or brand risk – the three priorities of media quality, as ranked by advertising professionals.

This is why LinkedIn is twice as trusted as their nearest rival, and three times as trusted to protect users’ privacy and data and to be clear of rogue content.

In this 60-minute webinar, Jennifer Urbanski, Government Lead for Canada, LinkedIn Marketing Solutions, will share how LinkedIn is protected from fake news and aggressive dialogue by the nature of the platform and the community that surrounds it.
