Social media has become an increasingly integral part of our social fabric, serving as a critical tool for networking, community building, commerce and more. With its increasing prevalence, social media has also become a way for people to (intentionally or unintentionally) track their lives – both professionally and personally. LinkedIn, Facebook, Pinterest, Snapchat, Twitter, Blogs, Instagram – all can be great social media resources for businesses and their employees. They can be used to connect employees on employer-run social media pages and market to target audiences directly. As helpful as social media can be, it can also pose potential landmines. Many businesses can overlook, or are simply not aware of, legal issues that can arise from the use of social media, including in the areas of intellectual property, employment issues, defamation and privacy. At the same time, social media has proven to be a valuable tool in employment litigation, running the gamut from vetting an expert witness to providing evidence in case. This program will look at potential landmines and provide considerations for employers running business in today’s world of increased social media.
