Hanady Burkett-Awada commented on Steven Groves's blog post McD's recent campaign in social; did they blow it? Blame it on the #Hashtag
"McD did a great job of minimizing what could have been a huge social media fiasco. There's a big lesson here. Companies need to consider all possible uses of a particular hashtag (positive and negative) before launching to determine its risks."
