JD Wetherspoon chain completely removed themselves from all of their active social media platforms. Some people are calling this crazy & some are following suit. Leaving behind over 100,000 collective followers, they are asking everyone to check their website for all information from this point forth. Smart or crazy?

This comes to lite after the recent Facebook Scandal all over the news. I highly doubt, Facebook will tank because of this BUT I have heard a large amount of users are now taking their social media accounts elsewhere.

As a digital marketer, removing yourself from social media seems like a shot in the foot. If you really sit and think about it for a minute, your company will still be on social media, thanks to your customer base. Their employees can still share updates as well. They will still continue to share & post moments about the company. Just your company information will now only be found on the website. So in the reality as long as social media is around, your company will still be on there.
