There has been a flurry of activity in Martindale Hubbell Connected for Social Media Policy Week, part of our summer theme Social Media Solutions.  Besides the announcement of the $10K For Charity promotion, which celebrates the Martindale Hubbell Connected membership breaking the 10,000 lawyer mark, there have been guest blogs, forum postings, and document uploads all about social media policy.  Next week, we continue the conversation by posting an on-demand playback of today’s successful webinar, Creating Social Media Policies, as well as, downloadable power point slides of the presentation (more information to follow).

Check out these posts about social media policy inside Martindale Hubbell Connected (log in required):

In August, we again focus on Using Social Media to Land Your Next Legal Job.  There will be a special video interview with Janet Hausler, head of the Lend-a-Hand project, a webinar about social media career building presented by myself and resident social media expert Alin Wagner-Lahmy, guest bloggers, special forums, and more.  Social Media Solutions then finishes at the end of August with more special events and the production of a crowd-sourced best practice for social media policy creation and implementation.

This social media policy database contains links to more than 70 social media policies, and you can filter by industry.

Thanks Chris – this is a real treasure! Also looks like a growing database where companies and firms can add their own policy, a real wonderful way of aggregating all of the links together.
I am curious if you have a specific favorite or recommended policy? I personally tend to lean towards the Intel social media policy, written in a very human and light manner to entice the user to keep on reading – a policy is not something employees rush to read and this one reads in a very enjoyable manner.

Nice article and thanks for sharing your thoughts. I firmly believe that every organization big or small should have a social media policy. Recently I completed an analysis on usage of social media and its impact on productivity and have published my findings here

Hope you guys find it useful and also do let me know your views on the same

Hi Amit: thanks for the link. I commented on your blog about the comparison you make between IT policies and social media guidelines (that is a key observation). Also, the list of links on your post is great. We’d love to see you get involved in the social media solutions theme this summer.
