    You kind of imply that a policy is somehow a form of protection. I would argue that it’s not.

    A policy can spell out expectations and can provide a documented recourse should the policy be violated…but it can’t protect, it can only react.

    The issue on the web is that once the damage has been done it’s too late. It’s out there and forever. This is why you are seeing more and more companies moving towards enterprise blogging software that allows for moderation prior to publication. (I’m not trying to do a commercial for Compendium here, only reporting on a growing trend we happen to have a front row seat for)

    Too many times we have seen cases of companies with no choice but to terminate good employees who have perhaps made a mistake in judgment because all they had to rely on is their ‘policy’.

    Very interesting read.

    As a business which has been using social media from the very start it certainly highlights some areas / guidelines that need to be considered.

    Thanks.
