    Legal implications of social media Legal implications of social media Presentation Transcript

    • Social Media Policies
      Legal and Ethical Implications
    • What is a social media policy?
      A policy
      About Social Media
    • Do I need one?
      Do you trust your employees?
      Does your employer trust you?
    • 2 types: Personal and Corperate
      Personal:
      Individuals should use one to CYA, and keep online personals separate
      Corporate:
      Some companies think they need them
      I am not a lawyer, talk with yours
      (Many don’t )
    • Personal Social Media “Policy”
      “All opinions that I express online are mine. If they are on a personal account, they belong to me, not my current, former, or future employer. If there is an issue with any of them, please address all concerns to me. This includes, but is not limited to, my personal twitter account, my posterous, facebook, flickr, qik, vimeo, youtube, and this website. The exceptions to this are for the accounts that I manage with express permission for my employer or clients. These currently include, but are not limited to and can change without notice, the online presence of Easton for Schools, Cool (intl), codename LINGO, and Hamline Student Business Group. Those opinions are still my own, and do not necessarily reflect the opinions of my current employer, and should be taken at face value. Please address any concerns to me via either my contact form, or any of the methods described on the contact page of this website.”

    • What is that?
      Separates my personal and professional obligations, opinions
      Puts the blame on me
      Lets people know when I am being official i.e. who is at fault
    • Corperate SM
      If you think you need one legally, talk to your attorney
      No SM “expert” should give legal advice on this
    • If you choose…
      Please, let employees think for themselves
      This is a time to be reactive, rather than proactive
      If you don’t trust them, should they be your employees???
    • Do’s
      Be Organic
      Realize they are going to do it, do not try to stop it
      Risk bad press
      NFL
      AP
    • Don’ts
      Don’t write your policy with you bottom line the only thing-many intangible gains
      Don’t treat your employees like they are idiots
      Don’t extend work too far
      AP
    • Lets Chat
      Am I right? Wrong? Full of shit?
