It is no surprise that an area of concern for many businesses is Social Media. Facebook, Twitter, MySpace and many other programs are gaining popularity at an incredible rate. This popularity means there is great marketing potential for both small and large business. However, without clear guidelines to follow when dealing with social media there is potential for damage to a business’s reputation by its own employees as well as some liability issues that can arise. Many businesses have adopted a code of conduct or “social media policy” for their employees when dealing with social media programs. Making a social media policy for your business is not only prudent, it is something that no successful business can afford to ignore.
It is important that your social media policy is a proactive document that encourages responsible conduct from your employees. After all, once any damaging information has been shared it is often too late for a policy to be effective. The damage has already been done.
