Social Media Policy Questions 9

I’ve been doing a lot of work in the area of social media policy development. The same questions keep surfacing in my conversations with executives at different industry associations. Although, we see many of the two-page social media policies that are public facing, many executives are inquiring about their employees and what they need to know regarding social media participation, beyond the obvious “Rules of Engagement.”

PR 2.0 Events 0

Today, conferences and events take on a PR 2.0 approach by promoting engagement long before the conference begins. Participants are encouraged to get to know the speakers and form relationships with other attendees prior to registration in the physical setting. Rich Teplitsky and I are the co-chairs of the PRSA T3PR Strategic Views on Technology and the Changing PR Landscape Conference in New York City on June 11th. Our approach and goal for this conference is to let everyone engage through social media before the event, and get the conversations going so that we’re all comfortable IRL (in real life). We want this program to be more intimate; when everyone meets in person, it should feel as if we’re old friends.
