Why Social Media Policies Aren’t Enough

A recent survey shows that very few U.S. companies have re-evaluated their Electronic Stored Information Disclosure strategy in light of the social networking revolution.

Workflow not a Policy

Policies are stagnant and become musty as it takes a major effort for organizations to review and update them to take into account the behavior and culture of the entire entity.  This is why I advocate that companies that tackle social networking policies, do so within the framework of creating a workflow that is always operational and reviewable.  Yes, policies should emerge from these workflows but they shouldn’t be engraved tablets but organic and flexible guidelines that acknowledge the ever-changing environment of social media and related technologies.
