007 What can we learn from the Fyre Festival Fiasco?

The next Free Range Social Show:

Everyone’s talking about the failed Fyre Festival at the moment. That’s probably because both Netflix and Hulu have released documentaries on it.

(Imagine someone asked Twitter for restaurant recommendations, and a social media manager replied to suggest one of their clients – that’s prob a clearer example than the t-shirt 🙂 )

It’s about “misleading omissions” under the Consumer Protection Act – if what you publish could reasonably be expected to sway someone’s purchasing decision, then you have to declare a commercial relationship.

Haven’t seen the documentary on Netflix yet – it’s on the list. I need some new things to make me angry. 🙂

I don’t think it will make any difference whatsoever. When you were younger, didn’t you just hate it when older people told you that something was bad?

Paul fair point … I think the lawyers want to make sure it doesn’t happen again though (but I guess it also earns them big bucks so maybe there’s a clash of interests!!!)
