How organizations deal with social media use by employees and members is a popular topic. We thought some of you might like to see a new social media guide that the U.S. Marines published last month and posted on AOL Government. It’s a 48 page PDF that we’ve linked to below. We’ve also linked to a few other related documents and slide presentation about Google+.
First, from AOL Government:
The U.S. Marine Corps is best known for looking for a few good men.
But they are also looking to ensure those men adhere to a few good principles when it comes to using social media.
In its just-released handbook, “The Social Corps” provides a series of principles “to empower Marines to participate with our social media community.”
“The Marine Corps must continuously innovate to communicate in media-intensive environments,” the handbook declares, reflecting a tone that not only wants to encourage social media use, but the disciplines to use social media to advantage.
