This page looks at how to put together and maintain an effective social media policy. It covers where to draw the line between appropriate and inappropriate content posted by an employee on a social networking site. It also covers how much time employees should be spending on social media sites during working hours.

We also recommend that you review your policies and contracts more generally and ensure that they are updated to reflect social media issues. Our Table - social media policy and contract review can you help with this.
