How AI is Helping Brands Get Ahead of Influential Viral Stories

Online viral narratives can do wonders for a brand, or do permanent damage to its reputation and valuation. The speed at which online stories evolve and take hold can leave PR managers in a reactive mode, managing crises with hindsight data.

On this webinar, hosted with PRWeek, we discuss:

  • How popular brands become targets of online interest groups called factions and why they have the power to influence your brand reputation.
  • Who is driving emerging narratives and how successful they are in influencing the mainstream audience and the media.
  • Ways to navigate emerging issues and potential controversies to protect your brand equity.
