    Social Media and Its Impact on the Workforce



    Social Media can be a fun and rewarding way to share your life and opinions with family, friends and coworkers around the world. However, use of social media also presents certain risks and carries with it certain responsibilities.

    In the rapidly expanding world of electronic communication, social media can mean many things. Social media includes, all means of communicating or posting information or content of any sort on the Internet, including to your own or someone else's web log or blog, journal or diary, personal web site, social networking or affinity web site, web bulletin board or a chat room, whether or not associated or affiliated with your employer, as well as any other form of electronic communication. Ultimately, you are solely responsible for what you post online. Before creating online content, consider some of the risks and rewards that are involved. Keep in mind that any of your conduct that adversely affects your job performance, the performance of fellow associates or otherwise adversely affect members, customers, suppliers, people who work on behalf of your employer or your employer's business interests may result in disciplinary action up to and including termination.
