Will this new development impact your social media policy?

Here’s an interesting New York Times article on the emerging rights of employees to share what they really think about their employer in their personal social media sites – even if it’s negative. “The National Labor Relations Board says workers have a right to discuss work conditions freely and without fear of retribution, whether the discussion takes place at the office or on Facebook.” The article goes on to say workers have been reinstated in jobs where they were illegally fired even though their posts were against their company’s social media policy. It’s controversial – and it may be time to review your social media policy and consider how this may impact your world. What do you think about this news? http://www.nytimes.com/2013/01/22/technology/employers-social-media-policies-come-under-regulatory-scrutiny.html?pagewanted=1&_r=2&
