    26. 26. What can’t you do with SM?<br />View it as a traditional push advertising media. People unfollow spam fast.<br />Fix a bad product or service reputation – you can’t put lipstick on a pig<br />Work if you don’t put time into it – SM is a commitment to be more connected<br />Have a bot run your social media connection. It has to be a human. Really.<br />
    27. 27. Important HR applications of SM<br />Recruiting<br />Find potential employees, for free<br />Get referrals from your network<br />Check on potential employees work history<br />Develop a deeper understanding of potential employees<br />Examine SM activity for culture fit with your organization<br />
    28. 28.

    29. 29. Pitfalls and problems<br />Time wasting<br />Limit the time you spend actually logged into SM unless it is your full time job, early morning, post lunch and late day are best times<br />Use tools to filter irrelevant or uninteresting data or people<br />Don’t follow everyone – Dunbar’s rule<br />Use consolidation applications to monitor more than one outlet at a time<br />There is a learning curve to using it correctly<br />
    30. 30. Pitfalls and Problems<br />Legal issues<br />Be sure that what you tweet/post as an agent of your company is consistent with corporate policy, and the law<br />Be very careful about public censure, criticism or “flaming” <br />You personally as well as the company can be held responsible for fraudulent or defamatory posts<br />If your employees tweet/facebook/use SM from work you could become entangled in their lawsuit<br />You must be aware of discrimination laws if using SM in an HR context.<br />
    31. 31. Pitfalls and problems<br />Employee productivity<br />Must have a clear employee SM use policy<br />Should control what and which employees are allowed to post while on company time about the company<br />Should monitor what employees post while not on company time<br />Having a clear set of guidelines both helps prevent problems, and allows you to take action if problems crop up<br />Remember that some web-based SM sites are vulnerable to phishing and infections, be sure you have appropriate virus and spyware protection<br />
    32. 32. Pitfalls and problems<br />When not to tweet/blog<br />Unhappy or upset – give it 24 hours, then post<br />In a crisis or rising situation, without thinking through the consequences of your post<br />When it’s irrelevant to your demographic<br />More than 1/2 - 1 hour per day<br />When no one is listening (2am tweets)<br />
    33. 33. Other issues<br />Each person and company presence must find their own privacy comfort level<br />Be sure to assess carefully if your comfort level is higher than your demographic (over sharing can be bad)<br />The signal to noise ratio is very low in SM – must find ways to filter the noise<br />
    34. 34. Exercises<br />Create/post to a twitter account, and follow everyone else in the room<br />Create a facebook page (if you don’t already have one)<br />Create a linked in profile (if you don’t already have one)<br />Tweetdeck demo<br />SM2 demo<br />
