Throughout the past several decades, people around the world have marvelled at the rapid pace with which the internet has become central to daily life.

Issues faced by Facebook

Developing a social media policy that is appropriate for your company
A policy should be clearly drafted
Violations of these policies should be spelled out as well
Emails or meetings would be an effective approach to keep everyone current.
Punishment should follow through, lest the policy be rendered toothless.
