Beyond a Social Media Policy

Governance, Ethics and Privacy Issues Explained

Much has been written about the need for companies to develop a sound social media policy. However, with social media infiltrating our business and day-to-day lives with what seems to be the speed of light, it is not enough to simply have a policy outlining how your employees should engage via social media. You need a social media strategy that ensures all members of your organisation have an understanding of how the organisation will engage with social media and that sets out the levels of responsibility with respect to social media within the executive team. A social media strategy is also important for you and your employees to ensure that they are successfully representing your company and using the tools and channels available correctly.
