GETTING INTO TROUBLE WITH SOCIAL MEDIA

Michael S. Williams


“Gentlemen don’t read each other’s mail.”

- Henry L. Stimson


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

Good news - and bad - travels at 186,000 miles a second. How fast can you run?


SOCIAL MEDIA

  • Friend or Foe?

    • Asset or Liability?

      • Risk v. Gain


News vs. Entertainment

Need to know vs. Want to know


Who is Watching?

  • Your employer

  • Government

  • Foreign governments

  • IP service providers

  • Businesses

  • Your significant other

  • Private third parties (hackers)

  • Your friends

  • Your enemies


Not everyone is your “Friend”


“The first rule of any technology used in a business is that automation applied to an efficient operation will magnify the efficiency. The second is that automation applied to an inefficient operation will magnify the inefficiency.” - Bill Gates


FACEBOOK

The greatest intelligence tool ever created.


Michael’s Rules

  • If it is free it is likely dangerous

  • If in doubt – don’t!

  • Use of the Internet requires real discipline

  • Don’t assume what you see is what you see

  • Once you send or post something you no longer control it

  • Delete does not delete

  • Never post anything you would not say or give in person

  • Don’t become the emergency


Arrogance kills So does email


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

What is on your Facebook page?


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

What would happen if your computer was seized or it’s contents subject to a discovery subpoena?


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

Could your email or Social Media site(s) be used against you?

  • What would a background investigator think?

  • Do you give away too much useful information?

  • Can someone profile you from your Social Media?


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

What is in your Internet History cache?


Do you know your company/agency Internet and Social Media policy?


What are your document control policies?


Does your company/agency scan email and Internet communications?


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

Most companies back-up everything including email.

  • What do you have that you would not want found?

  • Remember, your work computer is not yours.


Some more of Michael’s rules:

  • Does anyone need to know what you are sending?

  • If what you are sending is something you would not want others to read – don’t send it.

  • Privileged and confidential materials do not belong on the Internet.

  • Don’t be lazy. The U.S. mail still works.

  • Fax machines are not yet extinct.

  • Anyone can post most anything. Do you want what you are sending posted for the world to see?


DANGER-DANGER-DANGER

Take note and use caution:

You can be held liable for what you write and post.

Don’t think for a moment you can not be found.


You must monitor your Social Media as a consumer and as a business. Do not view its as just an expense.

  • Protect revenue

  • Grow revenue

  • Image and crisis management

  • Corporate security
