    “What if someone stole our secrets or released them without permission, or brought a virus into our network?”
    Uncertaintyover the effects of losing control
    “Isn’t there a huge risk that employees will say something they shouldn’t if we don’t monitor what they’re allowed to do?”
    Doubtover productivity
    “Surely it increases the chances for employees to waste time?”
  • 18. Investing in “Internal Social Readiness”
    Vision and leadership drive accountability towards business goals
    Trained employees reduce potential risk
    Increased preparedness for social media crises

  • 20. Permit not Prohibit
    Companies most ready for social media don’t block, experience fewer and less damaging crises1

  • 21. Employees Don’t Need Your Network
  • 22.
    You can’t just dabble in social media. You can’t use them only when things are good. You have to deal with rain as well as sunshine. And I’m convinced that the upside outweighs the downside.
    If a company, or even its chief executive, doesn’t have a presence on social networks today, that company risks not being in the conversation at all. Over time, I believe, that can be fatal to a business.
