Who ‘owns’ the account? ~~ If you are paying an employee to build a following… You better make a provision that you own the account after they leave. Who will you follow? ~~ Believe it or not, there are inappropriate accounts out there. You ARE judged by the company you keep. Make sure you know who you are following and / or blocking. Don’t curse, spread hate, or otherwise attack people. ~~ Nothing good comes from this… And it spreads faster online. Nothing is private anymore. ~~ True story. Employee “A” commented on a story in the newspaper. He NEVER mentioned the company that he worked for. The next day, 3 TV news stations called the PR person for said company. How did the know? They googled his name. There is nothing private anymore… You have to let people know what ‘conduct unbecoming’ is and how it can get them fired. DO NOT friend your employees. ~~ Let your employees know they are welcome to follow you or friend you… but there is a lot of pressure in having a boss try to friend you and wondering if there are repercussions to ‘ignoring’ the big cheese’s request. Employee safety. ~~ I had a client approach me with concerns about her employees safety on social networks… For most of us, we can worry about dumb kids spitting in pizza… For certain professions, there are SERIOUS safety concerns. It may be an emergency services worker, police, abused women’s shelter, child advocate, psychiatrist, or anyone that could be the target of robbery. We’re in a high-tech world and it is easy to track someone down. As an employer you need to be in touch with the conversations to protect your brand and to protect your employees. Culture NOT Rules. ~~ Hopefully you’ve surrounded yourself with quality employees who believe in doing the right thing… If you have ingrained the right CULTURE in your company, you don’t have to worry about strict rules. Your employees automatically do the right thing.
