Using Social Media We are committed to aggressive journalism in all its forms, including in the field of computer-assisted reporting, but we draw the line at illegal behaviour. Internet reporting is nothing more than applying the principles of sound journalism to the sometimes unusual situations thrown up in the virtual world. The same standards of sourcing, identification and verification apply.

Q&A: Jeremiah Owyang on personal branding and his move to Altimeter Jeremiah Owyang became something of a social media superstar while working as an analyst for Forrester. Covering social media for the research firm, he also opines on the topic on his personal blog, Web Strategist, which receives over 100,000 visits a month — more than the combined monthly views for Forrester's top competitors Gartner and IDC. Owyang was one of many analysts to leave Forrester this year, and his departure added to the chatter that personal brands are starting to eclipse corporate brands in the tech space.

Social Media Policies Database – Compliance Building Here is my collection social media policies. I initially gathered a big collection while trying to formulate my own policy. That collection grew over the years to include a variety of industries, types of companies (public or private), industry and approach to social media (proactive, prohibitive or neutral). The collection began to get overwhelming so I decided to get it organized. I figured I would just share it and make it available. Why Your Company Should Have a Facebook Page (Not a Profile) The need to leverage social media for business is a no-brainer at this point, but a company's effectiveness on Facebook can be hampered if the account isn't set up properly. Here are four reasons why your business should be set up as a Page, rather than a standard profile. Facebook Says So According to Facebook's terms of service, "Profiles represent individuals and must be held under an individual name, while Pages allow an organization, business, celebrity, or band to maintain a professional presence on Facebook." If your business' profile gets shut down by Facebook for violating this rule, your friends list will vanish with it.

blogs: HP Blogging Code of Conduct HP blogs are written by a variety of employees at different levels and positions in the company, so you can expect many viewpoints. You can also expect the following: We will strive to have open and honest dialogues with our readers. We will correct inaccurate or misleading postings in a timely manner. We will not delete posts unless they violate our policies. The Anti-Chain Letter This letter has been sent to you to stop you from sending out chain letters. The original was written in the 3rd century A.D. by a deranged member of the Most Holy Post. That version vanished during the Spanish Inquisition (Nobody expects the Spanish Inquisition !!!!!!!!!). More recently, it was communicated telepathically to Shirley MacLaine by monks on the planet Mongo in the eighth dimension.
