There is a reason why PR companies exist.
Other companies use them to help manage how the media portrays them to the world at large.
Because of the decentralised nature of the Steem world our PR has largely been AWOL.
As far as I can observe Steemit Inc has never employed a PR agency. Or if it has, it has not been a very effective one.
For the Steem community at large we are our own PR agency.
As the DarkOverlord 'situation' demonstrates again, without PR we are at the mercy of whatever the media wants to write about us. No comment.
We Need To Talk To Journalists
@daan poses the question "Who's Been Contacting Journalists About Steem?".
We need to get out there and talk to journalists.
If we take the stories to the journos we might have a bit more of a say in what is written...
The DarkOverlord Ban Gets A Roasting
The crypto-media are having a field day with Steemit Inc's blocking of the @thedarkoverlord account from the steemit.com interface.
And on Twitter it's open season.
With a dash of PR could both sides of the story have been presented?
- STEEMIT.INC banned @thedarkoverlord from STEEMIT // Good call or did @NED just make another whoopsy?
Meanwhile in the crypto press...
Do We Need A Decentralized Community Regulated Account For A Better Steem?
@soyrosa poses the question "could a decentralized community regulated account be the next step needed towards a better Steem?"
And she has set up a DPoll to vote on the idea.
I am pretty sure the answer is yes.
The how might be less clear cut.
- Dear Steem Community, could a decentralized community regulated account be the next step needed towards a better Steem?
