Generic social media policies can be spread across social media from consultants and public relations professionals. How can you tell if these cover all of your bases thoroughly? Employees may act out of line on social media in so many ways, throwing your organization, company, or school into the midst of a crisis. For the best crisis communications and social media management, you need to act quickly and strategically. Have you ever heard of an employee acting out on social media in an inappropriate, bizarre, or odd way? Did your company or another company you know of have to write an employee social media policy on the spot, or adjust their current one?
To help out our corporate communications professionals, and our public relations community, this week’s communications discussion question is, “What crazy or odd social media act by an employee has warranted writing or changing your social media policy?”
