What should be included in an employee social media policy? Tips from Followers

Last week, crisis communications expert Gerard Braud posed a question for his followers who are experts in corporate communications, public relations, and social media. He asked, “What should be included in an employee social media policy?” A wide variety of answers flooded in and now we want you to add to the discussion. Do you agree with their comments?

How can you establish clear guidelines for your employee’s behavior on social media? Is it appropriate to hold team meetings to discuss or establish boundaries for social media behavior?
