Hello Rich @rich-brooks
My FB personal account is also linked to my brand so I don’t really chit chat all that much with relatives, although sometimes it happens. A cousin just had a new baby grand-sugar and of course, that’s a very big deal to all of us. Adorable child. At any rate, interacting with family is a big part of FB, so, unavoidable.
FB is different than a lot of other places, you pretty much have complete control over what happens and how you handle that will reflect on your biz acumen. I know; I’m in the same boat.
If a relative is being unkind, cut them loose. I mean that. For whatever reason, this relative has chosen to deface your wall. What would you do if this was a stranger? You’d boot them out, right now, without question, right? No difference for a relative. IF they know this could impact your biz, then that person does not have your best interest at heart.
Or, at the very least, send a private message that tells him what he did (the comment) and why it was removed. I don’t think I’d send anything that goes out to everyone. Since this fellow is family you have to take a slightly different tack. The fact that the comment was racist does matter however, you see this in the mainstream every single day. Some racist jerk spouting their poison.
And if you don’t hear from him, just mark it up to a sad/bad experience and move on. You know, you cannot please everyone. It’s impossible. We’d all like to please every single person; but OH!pinions are like… well, you know (and everyone has one.)
This was mine.
