I have been sad to see the exploitation of September 11th, a day of remembrance, for social marketing–and so has the rest of the Likeable Media team, especially considering we’re New York-based.
Many digital and social marketers have been tracking these gaffes, and although AT&T’s may be getting the most coverage, there have, unfortunately, been several other brands that have shared distasteful content today.

We apologize to anyone who felt our post was in poor taste. The image was solely meant to pay respect to those affected by the 9/11 tragedy.

Relax, everybody. There was a stupid technical glitch on our “Falling Man” story and it was fixed asap. We’re sorry for the confusion.

Please remember this, and help your teams, clients, colleagues, and fellow industry professionals remember it too.
