Whether it was a dear-diary type of platform, the original MySpace website, or current social media sites like Facebook and Instagram – every piece of information you have willingly put out into the webosphere is still there and available to those with enough tenacity to find it.

Personally and professionally, it is essential that you have a pulse on the information that is already available for customers and headhunters to … READ MORE

Don’t ever listen to someone who says it can’t be done either. There are a list of things you can try and have some moderate success removing negative feedback. Moderate success, in my opinion, is better than nothing!
So Do You Want to Know The SECRET for Removing eBay Negative Feedback?
PERSISTENCE! That’s right, you heard it straight from the horse’s mouth. How much is your time worth for you to fight and get that negative comment removed?
