social media policy | hireVision Group, Inc.We here at hireVision love social media. Its possibilities and potential are endless. Still, social media moves at a frenetic pace, and it can take just one false move or brief mistake in judgment for a negative backlash to go viral, then hit your company like a virtual tsunami. Even a non-viral negative social media issue can be problematic, with a possible aftermath of decreased revenues, legal problems, bad publicity and/or a damaged reputation. The worst case scenarios are frightening to think about.

Luckily, there are things you can do to protect yourself now, and in the future, as you and your company move forward and take advantage of all the tremendous things social media has to offer in the digital age. From having a clear social media policy in your company handbooks to staying on top of the latest legal issues that affect your industry.
