This week on the show social media employment law expert Eric Meyer makes a return to the HR Happy Hour to talk about the evolving and important topic of the company use of social media, social networking in the organization, and the law.
Since the last time Eric was on the show a couple of years back several significant changes have occurred. First off, the use of social media and social networking platforms by organizations has exploded. It used to be clever to see a 'like us on Facebook' in an advertisement, and today fully branded Twitter hashtag campaigns are common. Second, an emerging marketing, branding, and social media and digital ecosystem of new and leading practices has emerged, influencing how organizations are choosing to interact in social media. Third, many individual employees are seeing their personal brands and images bolstered by their use of social media in their job capacity, placing additional pressure on them and on their leaders. And last, more cases, opinions, and rulings related to how employee and employer use, ownership, and policies around social media have been developing in the last few years.
So will all that said, we thought it was time for a little refresher course - to try and get you caught up with what has been happening in the legal world while you have been busy poking people on Facebook.
Eric is a fantastic guest and it should be a great show! I hope you can join us!
