Managing your online presence is becoming something that is more and more integral in the day and age that we live in. The digital world has taken over and the age of information reigns supreme. That is why Status Labs founder and CEO Darius Fisher has been so successful in the past couple of years. Fisher established Status Labs as a firm meant to help people manage their online exposure, cultivate a positive brand, and manage any potential crisis that come their way. Fisher also released this information when it comes to dealing with one of the most common online problems today: unfavorable photographs leaking online.
When you see a compromising image online with you in the frame you definitely want to get rid of it as fast as possible. In order to make this happen CEO Darius Fisher had a slew of techniques to get the ball rolling. First he strongly believes that you need to be proactive in your actions. Immediately contact the web administrators of the hosting websites of the compromising image. Often times they will remove the image if you simply request. If the administrator isn’t feeling compliant then you can get an attorney to write up a DMCA form. This form will put you on the right legal path to getting the photo removed.
Once the photograph has been removed or culled down you need to start being proactive with your brand. Hiring an SEO based reputation management company like Status Labs is the logical next choice.
Finally, Darius Fisher suggests that you address the problem with your company and with your audience if you are a public figure. Showing that you have a clear plan of attack and that you have learned from the mistake is an easy way to gain confidence in your team.
