Social Media Policies in the Office

Twitter and Facebook are increasingly being banned in the workplace, according to two recent surveys covered in an October 8th article titled "Companies Say No to Friending or Tweeting."

In some law firms, like Florida-based Gunster Yoakley, lawyers are allowed to use social media tools for business development. Access is not allowed, however, for the firm's support personnel.

The article quotes Gaida Zirkelbach, an associate at Gunster who focuses on technology and the Internet, as saying, "I think what's happening is social media is starting to simmer, and the lawyers and the PR teams, the HR teams and marketing teams are realizing there are all these problems."
