Entrepreneurs implementation of social media privacy

So it is needed a wel furnished policy summarizes every business establishment either online or offline procedures for employee communication in the online or offline.Here is the  Entrepreneurs implementation of social media privacy on corporate bloggers and personal bloggers.
1.Privacy policy for Entrepreneur:-
The main reason behind the privacy policy is that it is not as huge as Exxon Mobil does not mean you can not get yourself into hot water for what you tweet or post.So if you are a business of one or many,it is best to have some semblance of a social media policy in place.
2.Social media effect on privacy:-
Do not worry,it does not need to be as fancy or long as the one IBM has developed.But you should have something crafted before you jump head-first into the social seas.What should you consider when developing a social media policy ? There are several things that can be very specific to your individual business. But we will stick to concepts that could apply to most businesses,big or small.
3.Privacy implementation factors:-
It is needed when developing a social media policy for your company consider implementing the following points here:-
A.Explain why privacy policy:-
Explain why you have developed the policy,Let your employees know that they should be themselves.They do not need to lose their personality,but do need to understand that they are representing the company,even when using their personal accounts.
B.Include responsibility guidelines:-
Most employees(and even owners)need to be reminded to use common sense when participating in social media.If you would not say it in front of your mother,you probably should not tweet it.
C.Promote good judgment:-
Most people know right from wrong but having it in your policy can save you some grief later on.Have a section devoted to copyright and fair use.Using that photo you found on the web for a blog post could get you into more trouble than you bargained for.
D.Trade secrets and proprietary information:-
No one intends for the secret sauce recipe to get out in the wild.But reminding your employees what company information not to share could save your competitive advantage.
Discourage aggressive and confrontational behavior.This is usually spelled out in most employee handbooks,but should be called out specifically in your social media policy as well.Employees may think they are sticking up for the company when trying to correct misinformation.Encourage responses to be done in a professional and considerate manner because they can be even more critical than the original comments.
E.Encourage value worthy conversation:-
Do not just tweet to tweet.Inspire your team to stand above the noise and provide information that can really help your current customers and prospects too.
F.Violation reminder:-
Spell out the consequences of violating your social media policy.Remind your employees that the company reserves the right to request that certain tweets,posts and comments be removed if they violate the company social media policy.
4.Learn big horses from Industry:-
It is needed a few examples to get you started at right points with real time updates of privacy,Here some of the following successful examples of Entrepreneurs/ companies privacy:-
Cisco , Dell , Intel , Microsoft , Nordstrom and many more.
Whether you are just starting out or your company has been involved in social media for years,take a bit of time to help your team navigate the ever-evolving social world.You can manage some additional social media policy in my previous pots.
