That was made abundantly clear over the weekend, as the result of some troubling words texted by former Communications Executive Justine Sacco.
Sacco worked for IAC, the company that owns TheDailyBeast.com, Match.com, About.com, CollegeHumor.com and other sites. She left for a vacation to South Africa, the country where she was born, and sent the following disturbing Tweet: Incredibly, Sacco offended on both topics in the same Tweet. For her part, Sacco has issued an apology. We'll have to wait and see if she gets a chance to write her own next chapter, or if she has communicated herself out of the industry.


Can NJ Businesses Make Employment Decisions Based On Social Media?

A good example of how social media has significant repercussions for businesses can be seen in the story of Justine Sacco, a former director of corporate communications at IAC.
Justine was a 30-year-old executive at the height of her career, visiting family in South Africa during the 2013 holidays. Airports are incredibly boring, which may have caused Justine to take out her smart phone and log in to Twitter. Justine then made the biggest mistake of her professional life when she tweeted, "Going to Africa. Hope I don't get AIDS. Just kidding. I'm white!" After making the infamous tweet, Justine boarded her 11-hour flight to Cape Town, South Africa. Once she landed, her entire world had changed. It did not take long for Twitter to blow up with fury over the tweet. In just 11 hours, Justine and her tweet had become the number one trend on Twitter. People worldwide were furious at IAC and the comment, calling for Justine to be fired. As a major figurehead of IAC public relations, Justine represented the company. IAC is the corporate owner of several other large companies, such as OKCupid, Vimeo and The Daily Beast. It is a major player in the social networking industry, and one of its public relations employees had just made a racist AIDS joke. IAC fired Justine shortly after her comment was made, but not before taking enormous amounts of criticism.
