LOSING SIGHT OF THE COMPANY'S OBJECTIVES 

We must assume that objectives are set in all companies, as they are extremely necessary in order to subsequently choose the best strategy for action

Therefore, not taking the company's objectives into account can be a serious mistake, especially for the business, as it can create a misleading image of the company and even confuse customers.

But you should never plagiarise or literally copy other people's posts.

This not only seriously damages the company's image, but can also constitute a real intellectual property crime.

SPELLING MISTAKES

Well, This is true for all brands and companies, having a greater or lesser impact depending on how well known they are or what sector they are in..  

Even so, over time, there have been well-known brands that have used these misspellings as a clear marketing strategy.

Just as it can generate a negative image, it also attracts the attention of customers, helping it to go viral for a simple spelling mistake..

For this reason, the Community Manager must carefully consider the possibilities, depending on the brand, the objectives and the values it represents, being able to allow, at a given moment, a spelling mistake in order to make a more attractive slogan.

FALSE OR MISLEADING INFORMATION 

Finally, another big mistake is publishing information without ensuring its veracity and cross-checking different sources

Great care must be taken with the hoaxes of the InternetOnce published on the web, they can cause serious damage. 

Then, Failure to check the veracity of what is published can seriously damage the brand or business, as well as making us party to the spread of false information..

Therefore, before any information is published, it is always recommended that a brief research work, with the sole objective of ensuring and verifying the veracity of the information.

Also, impartiality must not be lost, using the most objective point of view possible and using the most neutral arguments and justifications for publishing information.
