Awesome Tool for Creating Social Media Policies

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.
