Think Before you Press That Button – What Not To Post on Social Media

I just read a superb piece of advice by Hootsuite

What Not To Post on Social Media: 5 Questions You Need To Ask Yourself Before You Publish.

This is an important read. Social Media can really offer big time reputation risk.

As I read it a few quotes came into my thoughts:

– “Once the bird has flown the nest, it cannot be recouped”;

– Robert Scoble – “All it takes is a 140 characters to destroy your Reputation”.

This advice should be included in your Social Media Policy and training materials used for onboarding and educating executives and the workforce about the inherent dangers in social media.
