  • 3. • As Nestle prepares to roll out and activate Café Viet on FacebookFanpage, it is important to create plans for any public response.Consumers could ask questions and/or make comments – bothpositive and negative – that will be important for the company torespond to in order to maintain its brand online.• With the expectation for brand responses usually being less than 12-24 hours, participation on Facebook and in the social media space ingeneral, requires quick action to meet consumers expectations. Inorder to achieve this response speed through this new channel,commenting guidelines with sample responses and escalationprotocols are necessary.Overview
  • 4. Potential risk &detractors
  • 5. • Facebook provides a hub for Café Viet to connect and engage withits customers in a deeper and richer manner.• Detractors may provide negative feedback or simply disrupt theotherwise positive conversations.• By posting negative comments on Café Viet’s Facebook page, thesepeople will detract from the company’s otherwise strong brand.• Responding and moderating appropriately will show Café Viet as anactive participant in the community and the negative comments willbe seen as net-positive interactions as we help solve problems of ourcustomers.Potential Risks &Detractors
  • 6. Potential Detractors – Here is a list of some of the types:– Valid Complainers - have valid complaints and are voicing them in thehopes to receive a response or simply to vent. Present great opportunitiesto respond and address the problem directly, turning the negative issueinto a positive resolution.– Dissatisfied Customers - Similar to the parent group of validcomplainers, these posts could be directed at Café Viet or third parties –either way, it will be important for us to respond to as many of theseposts as possible – these people, if assisted, can easily become CaféViet’s most vocal fans.Potential Risks &Detractors
  • 7. – Unfounded Complainers - It is possible that users who are notinterested in discussing Café Viet could attempt to insert themselvesinto the conversation. These detractors will oftentimes not require aresponse – responding can add fuel to the fire.• Spammers - someone who attempts to insert themselves by pushing theirproduct or Web site, or their facebook fanpage.• Off-Topic Posters - contribute irrelevant and off-topic content to thediscussion. These comments can be safely ignored by both the brand andthe community.• Disruptors - user who attempts to hijack the conversation in much thesame way as a spammer, except that their goal is just to disrupt rather thanto promote themselves. Just as with a spammer, ignoring is the bestresponse.• Agitators - user who tries to derail the conversation with specificaccusations or challenges. It could be somebody who simply has a bone topick with big business, the insurance industry overall or someone who justdoesn’t like Café Viet products and services (e.g: Trung Nguyen’s Coffee –G7 was competitor of Café Viet)Potential Risks &Detractors
