Kids on Social Media

When last we left, I was facing an embarrassing and damaging Yelp review.  Put up by and angry youngster.

I ended up filing a complaint with Yelp and can happily say – as of yesterday – the post has been removed.  It apparently violated their “content guidelines”.  Specifically:

Thanks for contacting Yelp.

We have removed the review by Max P because as written, it falls outside our Content Guidelines. If the user chooses to edit his review and it no longer falls outside our guidelines, we will allow it to remain on the site.

Regards,

So I guess a thank you is in order for Lucy.

I have no answers for the problems of youth and social media other than to say it must be thought about, realized, and accounted for.

Luckily, this one worked out in our favor.
