I’m not sure if I should adopt a social media policy for my business. Why should I?

Many employers and companies have been scared of social media in the past but are now embracing it. They know that there is a great chance that the majority of their employees are using Facebook, Twitter, and other social media sites in their everyday lives. And while they used to ignore it, they are now finding out that they can use it to their advantage.

If you ignore what your employees are doing and saying on social media sites about your company and/or your products, you may be doing yourself a disservice. When unfavorable things are said about your business, it can have adverse affects. Instead, take steps to prevent these comments, which can help protect your company.

It is essential in this day and age to have a social media policy for your company that your employees need to abide by that includes rules about privacy, defamation, slander, trademark issues, and more. A good policy would outline the guidelines and the repercussions if the rules aren’t followed.

You also need to train employees – helping them understand the social media policy and why it is important to the business’ reputation and image – and enforce the policy.

If your company does not have a social media policy, you may be opening yourself up to certain risks.
