Social Media Guidelines…Be Social and Get Involved
Over the last couple of weeks I’ve been putting together some social media guidelines for Yorkshire CCC players.
I decided to get to work after a couple of Twitter incidents involving Aussie batsman Phillip Hughes announcing that he had been dropped for the Ashes, Darren Bent venting his anger at the Spurs Chairman and Yorkshire’s own Tim Bresnan swearing at a fan.
So far it is a draft document that covers my main feelings; however in the spirit of being social I thought I’d ask for contributions. It is intended to be a document that can grow and be updated.
Please note these are only going to be guidelines not a HR policy, the document is there to give the players a few things to think about when online. I’m a firm believer that PR people should provide social media guidelines (which educate) rather than getting involved in a HR policy (which are explicit in acceptable and unacceptable behaviours).
Disclaimer: I’m not getting paid for producing these guidelines; I’m putting them together as a favour to my old boss.
Here is the latest version of the guidelines…
