So how can you minimize the chance that you'll experience the former and maximize the chance that you'll experience the latter? One way is to develop and communicate a social media policy within your organization.

To help get you started Kodak, Intel, and Hewlett-Packard have gone public with their own policies. Read this article to find out how you can download those policies, and then use them to help guide you in your decisions regarding what will work best for your organization.
