Taking Advantage of Social Media in the Workplace [Infographic]

The rapid growth of social media presents a unique challenge for employers as well as employees. Without a pre-existing framework for determining what is proper for social media use in the workplace, companies have had to rely on a trial-and-error approach to social media etiquette.

Companies that take a more relaxed and positive approach to social media seem to have better success in shaping policies that result in better etiquette. When the emphasis focuses on what’s permissible rather than what is forbidden, social media “misbehavior” decreases dramatically. The best strategy is for corporate culture to embrace social media and encourage responsible employee use.

“Social Media in the Workplace” [infographic] illustrates some ideas to help employees be more responsible. It is an amusing read, like the Mouse Trap ride at The Boardwalk in Santa Cruz. Follow the graphics as it winds around to the end offering some very sound advice before you jump off and give it a try.
