Net2 Think Tank: Writing an Effective Social Media Policy

Claire Sale's picture

You understand the value of social media, but for some reason your company insists on blocking use of social media sites by employees. As of last October, half of all US businesses still block social networks, but that number is dropping. Even the US Military announced this week that it has relaxed it's policy on social media use by the troops. So, how can we write policy to support our social media efforts? This month's Net2 Think Tank asks you to share examples of effective social media policies.

Share your examples or ideas about organizational social media policy!


As social media becomes increasingly embraced by mainstream employers, how can you write a social media policy for your organization that both celebrates the positive side and addresses the negative side of social media? Have you already written a social media policy for your organization? If so, what challenges did you face and which strategies did you find most effective? And, if your social media policy is public, please feel free to share a link.

Deadline:  Saturday, March 20th
