Consumers demand a responsible, sustainable and ethical conduct by companies. Falsehood can be exposed faster.
Digital transparency does not only allow control, it also makes ethically correct manner visible to everyone. From the point of social and business psychology people also act morally correct, because and if they gain recognition from it.
Furthermore it is important to transfer the concepts of democracy and the respect for the argumentation of a verbal opponent into the digital world. Communication in digital media cannot be dealt with dismissing courtesy and empathy. As for democracy, there are no simple solutions, we need to tolerate discrepancies, which shall be established as a form of communication within the internet.
