    12. 12. Maintaining Trust<br />We understand ethical behavior is a key part of maintaining trust<br />We don’t support flogs or splogs<br />We would never create a fake ad, so why a fake blog post, fake Facebook fan page or fake tweet?<br />We always practice full disclosure<br />That means about ghost writing, too<br />
    13. 13.
    14. 14. Disclosure<br />When communicating with blogs or bloggers on behalf of my company or on topics related to the business of my company, I will:<br />Pseudonyms:<br />(Option A) Never use a false or obscured identity or pseudonym.<br />(Option B) If aliases or role accounts are used for employee privacy, security, or other business reasons, these identities will clearly indicate the organization I represent and provide means for two-way communications with that alias.<br />“We Didn’t Know”<br />Clearly disclose our involvement on all blogs produced by the company or our agencies.<br />Disclose who I am, who I work for, and any other relevant affiliations from the very first encounter.<br />Disclose any business/client relationship if I am communicating on behalf of a third party.<br />Provide a means of communicating with me.<br />Comply with all laws and regulations regarding disclosure of identity.<br />We will inform employees, agencies, and advocates that we have a formal relationship of these disclosure policies and take action quickly to correct problems where possible.<br />http://www.socialmedia.org/disclosure/identity/<br />
