Ouch … Careful What You Say!
SOCIAL MEDIA AND THE LAW
It sounds so simple. Ask your employees to post a glowing review about your company’s product or service. Use a poem in your company’s ad that exemplifies its philosophy. Find the perfect photo on Google Images to support your blog article.
Though your intent is perfectly innocent, you may be unaware of myriad hidden dangers that could get you – and your company – into legal hot water.
