Sorting through legal issues and creating social media guidelines continues to be a a big issue for most companies. Here are links to resources I’ve found helpful on the issue.
Also, please note one legal issue that not enough people are paying attention to. Many companies’ HR policies prohibit you from giving recommendations to people who have worked for them. This policy applies to LinkedIn: most likely you should not be giving LinkedIn recommendations for anyone who has directly worked for you or is currently reporting to you. Here’s a good legal perspective on the LinkedIn issue.
If you know of other helpful policies, please share and I’ll post. Thanks. Lois
