    Social Media potential issues

    • Learning Curve for staff and customers

    • Getting buy-in from Administration to start using social media

      • Does all outgoing communication need to be approved?

      • Consider having a “lead person” for consistency

    • Will we need a moderator?

      • Will all incoming communication need to be reviewed for appropriate content?
