Press Room

Press Release: July 21, 2009

You are invited to a free, live webcast: Creating Your Social Media Policy presented by Joshua-Michele Ross

The Social Web is about communities, collaboration, peer production and user-generated content: where business reputations are defined by customer opinions and ratings, where press is delivered by independent bloggers, and product development is driven by customers. As digital natives--those who have grown up with the Internet--flood the workplace, your employees will expect to be part of the Social Web and they'll have a lot to contribute.

How do you harness the benefits of increased employee participation and customer engagement while mitigating the risks? This webcast will review guidelines for corporations considering how to responsibly integrate social media in the workplace. After delivering the framework, Joshua will open the webcast to a Q&A discussion.

Who should attend: Any professional or executive thinking of using social media in the workplace.

If you have any specific questions you would like answered during the webcast--please send email to webcast@oreilly.com.
