Examples of social media policies

96264836 In corporate America (and probably corporate World), rules get created when people make bad choices.  It's how child labor laws came to be and why we now have sexual harassment policies.  The few and the stupid are the catalyst to regulation.

Which is why it's not a shock that companies big and small are beginning to institute social media policies.  After the Dominos pizza incident and the world famous FedEx tweet — who can blame business leaders from wanting to protect themselves by setting down some rules?

I've put together a long list of social media policy examples for you to use as you create your own.  I'll keep adding to the list as I find new ones, so you might want to bookmark the page.  You can view/download them by clicking here.

  2. Hey Lori,

    Glad to provide the resource. I agree with you — why re-invent the wheel?
