Have you ever posted something on Facebook and instantly regretted it? Or responded to a rant on a discussion board with your own colorful adjectives?
Social media is often compared to a cocktail party. Lively conversation, good humor and interesting people. But unlike a cocktail party where a comment lingers momentarily, social media discussions often remain a permanent memory on the internet. Everything is searchable and Google never forgets.
We know UPSers take pride in their reputations – both personal and professional. To help our employees avoid some of the “pot holes” of social media, we’ve provided guidelines to help them smartly navigate online conversations.
You can learn more about our guidelines in this video. There’s also a PDF of the full guidelines at the bottom of this post. Special thanks to our friends at IBM, whose guidelines provided a starting point for us.
