easy to understand
personable "Social networks (online) are media, not because they help us communicate but because they extend human relationships." Chris Brogan - Trust Agents provide simple directions you'll want to meet people at their highest level of contribution - and that's different for everyone set expectations and finally - provide resources provide simple policies people can remember tools training the 3 stages of engagement what's the motivation? Some interesting stats regarding social media policies

17 percent disciplined an employee for violating blog or message board policies. Nearly 9 percent reported terminating an employee for such a violation (both increases from 2008, 11 percent and six percent, respectively).

15 percent have disciplined an employee for violating multimedia sharing/posting policies in the past 12 months, while 8 percent reported terminating an employee for such a violation.

US companies are experiencing an increase in “exposure incidents” involving sites like Facebook and LinkedIn as compared to 2008 (17 percent versus 12 percent). US companies are now taking a much more forceful approach with offending employees – 8 percent reported terminating an employee for such a violation as compared to only four percent in 2008.

Short message services like SMS texts and Twitter also pose a risk. 13 percent of US companies investigated an exposure event involving mobile or Web-based short message services in the past 12 months.

“The same way it can keep employees from doing stupid things on email & the phone. Give them guidelines and resources. Have an online communications policy that follows standard communications policies and trust them to do the right thing.”

How do we find the essential core of our ideas? “It’s hard to make ideas stick in a noisy, unpredictable, chaotic environment. If we’re to succeed, the first step is this: Be simple. Not simple in terms of ‘dumbing down’ or ‘sound bites.’ What we mean by ‘simple’ is finding the core of the idea. ‘Finding the core’ means stripping an idea down to its most critical essence.” (pgs. 27, 28) PRINCIPLE 2: UNEXPECTEDNESS

How do we get our audience to pay attention to our ideas, and how do we maintain their interest when we need time to get the ideas across? “The most basic way to get someone’s attention is this: Break a pattern. Humans adapt incredibly quickly to consistent patterns. Figure out what is counterintuitive about the message-i.e., What are the unexpected implications of your core message? Communicate your message in a way that breaks your audiences’ guessing machines.” (pgs. 64, 72) PRINCIPLE 3: CONCRETENESS

How do we make our ideas clear? “Abstraction makes it harder to understand an idea and to remember it. It also makes it harder to coordinate our activities with others, who may interpret the abstraction in very different ways. Concreteness helps us avoid these problems.” (pg. 100) PRINCIPLE 4: CREDIBILITY

How do we make people believe our ideas? “How do we get people to believe our ideas? We’ve got to find a source of credibility to draw on. A person’s knowledge of details is often a good proxy for her expertise. Think of how a history buff can quickly establish her credibility by telling an interesting Civil War anecdote. But concrete details don’t just lend credibility to the authorities who provide them; they lend credibility to the idea itself.” (pgs. 138, 163) PRINCIPLE 5: EMOTIONS

How do we get people to care about our ideas? “How can we make people care about our ideas? We get them to take off their Analytical Hats. We create empathy for specific individuals. We show how our ideas are associated with things that people already care about. We appeal to their self-interest, but we also appeal to their identities-not only to the people they are right now but also to the people they would like to be.” (pg. 203) PRINCIPLE 6: STORIES

How do we get people to act on our ideas? “A story is powerful because it provides the context missing from abstract prose. This is the role that stories play-putting knowledge into a framework that is more lifelike, more true to our day-to-day existence. Stories are almost always CONCRETE. Most of them have EMOTIONAL and UNEXPECTED elements. The hardest part of using stories effectively is make sure they’re SIMPLE-that they reflect your core message. It’s not enough to tell a great story; the story has to reflect your agenda.” (pgs. 214, 237) great, I get it, but what about my employees
or our CVC staff (which isn't many...) do our employees have enough time? do we have enough resources to invest? is this a good fit for our culture? do we know how to do this? http://realizedworth.blogspot.com/2010/02/journey-of-volunteer-tourist-traveler.html http://www.searchenginejournal.com/why-employees-need-social-media-guidelines/12588/#ixzz13eoFRaVm Does it work You want to find new members for the CVC You want to engage your stakeholders in discussions regarding your employee volunteering programs You want to add real value to your CVC membership Basically, we're looking for three things:

“GM offers extensive social media training, administered by a 3rd party, for employees. GM encourages transparency and respect above all.” Morgan of @JetBlue:

“Give your employees clear expectations if they’re going to engage openly online and also provide them with resources, so that if they’re confronted with questions, they’re not left making things up.” Here are Intel’s moderation guidelines which help employees respond appropriately to negative comments toward the company. “The Good, the Bad, but not the Ugly. If the content is positive or negative and in context to the conversation, then we approve the content, regardless of whether it’s favorable or unfavorable to Intel. However if the content is ugly, offensive, denigrating and completely out of context, then we reject the content.” http://intel.ly/9vX09h Check out Kodak's transparency guidelines (starting on page 10).
