    We are creating the first attempt at social media guidelines in our organization.  I would appreciate any input or examples that anyone would be willing to share.

    Laurie – do you have this in another format?  It seems the web formatting has published in a HTML version.  If it is easier to email to me novak@danacole.com would be great.

    Thanks for the response.
