Social Media Policy or Guidelines?

Does your company have an internet, or social media policy/guideline/code of conduct?

If it doesn't have one of these, grab some typewriter ribbon and get cracking!

Personally, I think online social networks are modern coffee & newspaper breaks; people used to take time and relax from work for a few minutes by grabbing a paper, some coffee, maybe even have a smoke - all in the convenience of their office!

Now, the reality is that alot of people spend time surfing the net or seeing what's happening on Twitter & Facebook ; through the companies computer or personal devices.

Good or bad, a policy should be written around this.  I was recently made aware of a site that can create this for you, for free, called PolicyTool.

It was developed by a group of Lawyers in Canada, so should be legally sound and save you time.

Check it out and let me know your thoughts!
