Corporate Social Media Policies via @FastCompany – my take & a great read

I really liked the simplicity of Intel’s social media policy and I can see how any traditional news outlets like CNN will have problems in this space trying to balance their objectivity on the issues.

It makes me wonder when your public face i.e. the anchors can talk at length about their own views but the people behind the veil cannot seems somewhat unfair. Instead of stating that you can’t mention anything the network is reporting on, how about saying that individuals cannot talk about any story that they are personally involved with and then just putting frank and EASY TO UNDERSTAND rules regarding how to go about actually being a part of the social media sphere that these networks constantly use.

This was a great article on some of the behind the scenes policies for corporations in the social media space and how much more complex it is and can get for news outlets.
