Survey: Companies fear social media liability

A well-timed survey from Russell Herder underscores that many businesses have failed to adopt social media policies in the workplace.

The survey is well-timed because Womble Carlyle is publishing a column on this subject tomorrow in The Daily Record. We'll outline a few steps executives can take if they are interested in channeling their workforce's use of social media through a clearly-stated policy. Stay tuned. We'll post the column on this blog tomorrow.
