A Corporate Guide For Social Media

From the Article:

Big corporations are scratching their heads trying to figure out how to harness the benefits of increased employee participation while mitigating the risks. Clearly there is no one-size-fits-all: If you are in financial services you have unique concerns for privacy, if you are part of the YMCA, you must be aware that having counselors "friend" teenagers is not appropriate, etc.

That said, here is a set of guidelines for corporations considering how to integrate social media in the workplace.

If you are an executive, keep in mind two points as you gear up your social media strategy: First, social technologies including blogs, social networks and Twitter are communication tools. That means a company's social media approach must integrate with its existing communications channels and goals. Second, if you think these guidelines don't apply to you, you are probably already on the endangered species list.
