Helen Goss of Boyes Turner offers some great advice on how to navigate the murky intersection of work and social media.

As social media marketing and usage increases the definitions of the law in regards to social media abuse will increase and become harsher. In many ways it is the same as in ‘real life’ working arrangements. You cannot simply go around ‘slagging off’ your boss or your company and expect not to be taken to task over it.

Social Media is not to be used for abuse or airing difference. It’s dangerous to both parties.

Bottom line- don’t put things into print about someone that you would not want them reading.

Helen walks through some specific cases of employees and employers using and abusing social media and the resulting court rulings. Definitely worth the read.

Let us know what you think about this in the comments. When should an employee be answerable to their company for their personal posts and tweets?
