Social Media Legal issues and policies

On Wednesday November 10 I will discuss social media issues at a TechAlliance Breakfast Club event entitled Developing a Social Media Policy for your Business.  I'll talk about:

  • The legal traps of Social Media use.
  • That fuzzy line between work and personal account posts.
  • How to respond to negative social media.
  • How a social media policy can help you.

I'll also create a sample social media policy using an online tool based on audience input.

For the record, my position on social media is not to exaggerate the theoretical dangers or suggest it should be suppressed in the workplace.  But there are a few things that should be kept in mind to reduce the legal and business risks that arise from it.

Hope to see you there.
