Companies Dictating Your Social Networking?

I got an anonymous tip this morning that I just can’t bring myself to copy and paste into this post.

The tipster tells me that a certain ad agency is now making their employees sign agreements that dictate what they can and can’t do on Facebook and other social networking sites. The phrases “drunken…employee told me” and “doesn’t understand social marketing” were included and gave the tip that bit of extra color I so love in a good tip.

If you happen to work at the agency that is doing this, please send me a copy of the agreement.

Readers, what do you have to say about this?


  1. I think a lot of companies are going to be establishing policies about social media. I know nFusion did. But a restrictive agreement seems over the top.
