There was a time when business owners would run their brick and mortar, advertise in newspapers, mailers and simply engage in their community. Now, with most businesses running online, companies try to sneak their name into anything they can…including ad like comments on social media posts and even posting a fake review to your company so people who read your reviews, also see an advertisement for another company! Below we give instructions on how to remove unwanted posts and reviews.
