We all know the companies policies in the United States are that if they are doing fine then harm is going on to the public until something happens! This means that if they are making money and the customers are paying and are happy then why should the company change their policies to make it safer when its doing fine?
Here is a thing holding large parties or block parties is always dangerous. This means that parties with being promoted on social media and a lot of random people showing up is dangerous which flares could go up and down at any situations.
As recent as this Thursday, Airbnb had an incident that made their policies differ than previous times. There was a shooting at a party being hosted at a mansion which was promoted on social media and left 5 people dead!
This is horrific and horrible news to the company and their PR team. They have to deal with the situation in crisis mode to get an action done fast. Then, the Airbnb team came up with no parties hosted on their platform anymore. We are sure this wasn’t the only incident that left the hosts worry compare to previous times and such. However, this is not a good news as it shows people are vulnerable in large settings when are not checked at the gates or entrances.
This shows that tech companies need to think more about security matters based on the critical outcome and try to prevent situations from happening than letting it happen and say we are sorry period. Why aren’t the tech company a little more sympathetic and show that they will try to add more people on their team to prevent such matters even if the situation hasn’t happened yet.
This is lack of efficacy and policies that are holding in the most free country that they are willing to do anything at anytime. This shows that they are willing to work something out but when the situation comes at hand rather than dealing with the crisis before it happening.
Such cases are always a crisis to the corporation and country which shows that we are doing fine until something goes wrong and then oops we are only sorry not going to change more than few policies around the corner. This shows how vulnerable things can be at hand and prove that crisis are the point to come across at anytime in hand.
With that said, Airbnb did and follow procedure from other tech companies and policies in the U.S and it shows it failed but they did what they had to do to clean up their act and make sure they are safe for their stakeholders and investors putting their money in the private company. That shows how the world of capitalism is running and it’s purely based on money rather than rights and security.
