Hey guys,

Here is the link for some interviews that I did. If someone wants to look at the information and summarize it or see what these interviews should add to our policy.

Benefit the World Social Media Usage Policy

Posted: January 30, 2012 by James Blinco in Assignments, Policy

Hey all,

Just looked at some of the links he posted about making a social media usage policy. I read some of the information and compiled a rough outline of what our policy should include.

  1. When working in the social media environment, it is important to disclose the fact that you work for Benefit the World.  If you are posting something about Benefit the World or some other company, identify yourself by name and your position you hold in the company. If you feel strongly about a particular subject or issue, be sure to preface your statement with that fact.
  2. Benefit the World values credibility and honesty. Do not misrepresent the company or post information without verifiable evidence.
  3. Think twice about what you publish on the internet. As a member of Benefit the World, you represent the company and harmful and malicious posts can have a negative impact on the company’s reputation and your employment status.
  4. Do not post any comments or opinions about other companies or people who are in direct legal litigation with Benefit the World.
  5. If you find yourself in a difference of opinion with another member of the social media community, be sure to remain polite. You represent the company and any harmful or misleading posts can have a negative impact on the reputation of Benefit the World.
  6. Use common sense when using social media. Do not violate the privacy or legal regulations for Benefit the World.
  7. Employees should not imply or state that they are representing the company’s opinions in their personal social media posts.

If anyone can think of anything that I have missed or something that we should include, just feel free to add it. I have one interview lined up so far for the assignment and if I do not hear from anyone about the policy, I will conduct the interview based around the current policy.
