A reputation is something that is formed about you or your company by others. However, you can alter and re-shape this reputation through your actions and words. On the Internet, this is not neccesarily true. The anonymous and anarchic nature of the Internet allows others to shape your image without your input. Brand reputation management companies can ensure that your online reputation is not distorted by conjecture and rumor.

There is a case in the Philippines where a facebook user called for a boycott of a celebrity doctor. The doctor is sueing the user for Internet-based libel in a country where there are no laws governing libel on the Internet. Indeed, most of the Internet is fairly anarchic in that regard–which is why search engine reputation management exists.
