Best Practices in Social Media Governance talks about documenting the nature of social media, its uptake, and the benefits and risks involved in participation for your organisation. These are illustrated with case studies and examples of social media policies and guidelines. Above all, the report addresses the need for governance within organisations, and what it might take to maintain control of participation at the same time as allowing freedom for benefits to accrue in intrinsically unpredictable and uncontrollable ways.
