Americans spent more than 30% of their time online on social networking sites and blogs. Without a company social media policy in place, much of this time can translate into wasted work hours at the office. In addition, many employees feel it is ok to discuss company information online, which can lead to huge PR issues.
"When employees engage in social media, sometimes their working lives blend with their social lives. Without a clear social media policy protecting your company, you could be putting yourself at risk," said Sara Newman, Director of SEO Consulting and Social at 6WSEO
For companies looking for a social media policy, 6WSEO can create a sample email that can be sent to employees to establish ground rules regarding social media and Internet usage. "This policy has been created based off of our extensive experience as a social media agency," said Newman. "It is a moderate social media policy with some leeway. Certain companies may choose to have a stricter or less regulated company social media policy."
