Twittering at Work? Unthinkable!

The majority of upper-level executives don’t allow employees to use social media tools at work. Why not? What are the risks? What are the benefits? Many companies are employing social media policies to mitigate any associated risks.

There’s a Giant Snowball Headed Your Way

I ran across a post in our forums, and was glad to see the discussion started. It’s a question almost every company/entity/individual has to ask these days as business practices are steadily becoming more social: “Should I have a presence on Twitter/Facebook/MySpace/Linked In, etc.?”

From Whence the Tweet?

I just read this great tidbit on ReadWriteWeb that discusses how people use Twitter. Some base statistics from a report done by the “Consumer Internet Barometer” include these: “…the majority of Twitter users (42%) use the service to communicate with their friends. About 29% use Twitter to update their status, 26% to find news, and 21% for work-related reasons. Oddly, only 0.3% said that they use Twitter for fun.”

The first time I tweeted (and why I still do)

This was back in March, 2009—a lifetime ago in Twitter time. This was back before Oprah, before Ashton vs. CNN, before Alice Hoffman lost her mind. This was an innocent time. When getting a new follower wasn’t automatically met with cynicism. When the 3 rolled tacos meal at Chico’s Tacos was still only $1.99.
