The NRA is so desperate to not attract attention on social media it's even considering moving to Google+.
The NRA's best move at this point is to lay as low as possible for a long time.
For one of the largest lobby groups in the U.S. they have been very quiet the last few days. I even saw that Dicks sporting goods is pulling some guns across all stores. For the stores near Newtown they issued a statement confirming they will pull all there guns.
I heard on the news this morning that they issued a general statement this morning with more to come on Friday. Were they very active on social media before?
Very. On 12/13, they surpassed 1.7 million "likes" on facebook. Their FB page is back up today.
I read that gun sales always go up after these kinds of tragedies. NPR radio said people buys guns after these events because they fear new laws will be passed that will prohibit them from buying guns in the future. A case of bad irony.
This is the most recent post on there Facebook page, posted 19 hours ago:
"The NRA is made up of four million moms and dads, sons and daughters – and we were shocked, saddened and heartbroken by the news of the horrific and senseless murders in Newtown. Out of respect for the families, and as a matter of common decency, we have given time for mourning, prayer and a full investigation of the facts before commenting. The NRA is prepared to offer meaningful contributions to help make sure this never happens again."
Well, I don't blame them. Moderating social media must be a nightmare for them after horrible events like Sandy Hook
It's always a tough call when something goes bad. It's fascinating to me what kinds of decisions organizations decide to do. A brand I helped develop, a teen dance party, had some minor gang wars going on during the event. It was nuts! Anyways, It's amazing how a few actions by a company after an event can turn the public's opinion in one direction or another.
That's why the world needs marketers and PR guys... and graphic designers to make it all look nice :-)
And PR chicks.
