How NOT to respond when the world is watching!   +Justin Bariso  has written a great post and I wanted to add this:
Even though it was a PR stunt, and even though we all know it wouldn't happen, its too bad that McD's CEO didn't pause before this really snarky, condescending post on Facebook..
McD's own CEO Steve Esterbrook said Burger King should simply have made a phone call...  
Bet Esterbrook now wishes, that he's simply picked up the phone, to respond instead of using social media!   Great lesson for everyone in business.
A PR stunt for peace day is quickly turning into a war between America's two burger giants.

Brilliant not peaceful. Free advertising. I too was put off by the McDonald's executive snarky reply. He should've been funny. Like an offer to buy out restaurant brands international for about half market value.

Elaine Says

After losing part of my leg, gaining some metal, titanium and other new parts as well multiple surgeries and hospital stays  I am Kinda Bionic and I am uniquely positioned to speak to the concept ‘always get back up‘..I play the ‘Glad” Game every day, and find the humor in almost everything.  My Gran & Life have taught me much and I want to share that wisdom with the world. The road has not always been easy or smooth. I feel the ups and downs have molded me into the woman I am today.

I survived being crushed between 3 vehicles and I survived a botched surgery that turned into multiple surgeries and decades of recovery, I am ‘kinda bionic’. I believe in creating your best story in business and in your life.  I am covered in scars, I used to hide from shame i now proclaim them to be my life marks. I’m here to show you that you can rise about, turn any situation around and live your best life in business. .

I have had to re start in business numerous times, after long term illness.  I understand how life can get in the way. I know how to maximize the least amount of time, while committing 100% to every task.

I live my can-do attitude. I give you the how-to, so you too, Can-Do! I love to see and hear the client’s excitement from multiple wins, resulting from the tweaks and changes we have implemented for them in search and social media.

I help increase your revenue using your online presence. Be the expert in your niche with search &  social media ( social networking,online video,blogging), LinkedIn foundation and strategies Google+ foundation and strategies, Twitter foundation and strategies, Online Video foundation and strategies.
