SEO Inc. Announces Tips for Creating a Company Social Media Policy
CARLSBAD, CA--(Marketwire - December 7, 2010) - SEO Inc, an industry leader in search engine optimization and social media marketing, has announced new tips for creating corporate social media policies to protect internal company information and develop clear guidelines for HR social media concerns.
According to the Nielsen Company, as of June 2010 Americans spent more than 20% of their time online on social networking sites and blogs. Without a company social media policy in place, much of this time can translate into wasted work hours at the office. In addition, many employees feel it is ok to discuss company information online, which can lead to huge PR issues.
"When employees engage in social media, sometimes their working lives blend with their social lives. Without a clear social media policy protecting your company, you could be putting yourself at risk," said John E. Lincoln, Director of SEO Consulting and Social at SEO Inc.
For companies looking for a social media policy, SEO Inc. has posted a sample email that can be sent to employees to establish ground rules regarding social media and Internet usage. "This policy has been created based off of our extensive experience as a social media agency," said Lincoln. "It is a moderate social media policy with some leeway. Certain companies may choose to have a stricter or less regulated company social media policy."
