I’ve been thinking about creating a social media policy for my company for a while now. “Thinking” versus “doing” because it seemed a bit daunting. It seemed like there were so many issues to consider and cover. Plus, my company likes to treat its employees like grown ups, so heavy-handed, top-down policies don’t really fit the culture. But guidelines are needed.
So I was beyond thrilled to find the PolicyTool for Social Media. It’s dead simple. Answer 12 questions, fill in some information and voila! you’ve got yourself a policy. It creates policies at every end of the spectrum, from command-and-control to anything goes. Of course you can further customize it by editing the final output.
Highly, highly recommend.
