    Giving a bad Facebook review

    If you really want to make your feelings known about a bad experience you have had, or a company that has treated you unfairly, you could give a bad review.

    These are powerful ways to get your complaints/opinions seen and they may make an organisation react faster and take you more seriously. However, you must be honest and keep to the facts or you could be sued for damages.

    But first I would recommend contacting the organisation and tell them that you are going to give them a negative review and why. This will allow them to rectify or explain their side of the story before it all goes public. 

    If you are not happy with their response then go ahead; but If you are going to give an organisation a bad review be honest but kind and try to be helpful - i.e. how they could improve. Give exact details of when and where and what went wrong.

    Taking this approach will make you look like the reasonable party, avoid litigation, and hopefully elicit a useful response. No one wins a slagging match - everyone just looks bad.
