Last week in class we briefly discussed how businesses were introducing social media policies in to their organizations. As social media has begun to be used by employees in organizations on all levels, companies have begun to write and implement social media guidelines to be used in their businesses. Here’s some links to various social media guidelines that companies have developed.
Two broad lists of social media guidelines and policies that are very good resources include:
Social Governance Online Database of Social Media Policies
Social Media Policy Examples
Here are some specific policies that companies have written:
