    • Policies Best Buy has a Social Media policy that’s in simple language and boils down to a single statement at the end: Remember: protect the brand, protect yourself Dell’s policy includes a section on the company owning social accounts created on behalf of the company: If that account is Dell property, you don't get to take it with you if you leave the company — meaning you will not try to change the password or the account name or create a similar sounding account or have any ownership of the contacts and connections you have gained through the account.
    • Montana State University Athletics Dept. has some common-sense language in its policy: Posting is speaking in public. Don't post anything you wouldn't say at a public meeting representing MSU or to the media. Wolverhampton Homes in the U.K. has a policy that addresses how to handle negative attention: It is much better to be honest about our failings and make it clear how we intend to put it right. If we make a mistake, we should apologise promptly and honestly, explaining what happened and what we will do to put it right.
