Overview

Blogs, Twitter, Google Plus, Facebook, YouTube – social media is here to stay and its impact on our lives is growing by the day. The growing use of social media has wide-ranging implications for the workplace. While it’s true that there are huge benefits to our highly connected society, its darker sides are also starting to be felt in areas such as data protection, freedom of speech, online defamation, time theft, cyber-bullying and the invasion of privacy, all of which pose significant risks for businesses and organisations. This online course looks at the law on virtual communication and provides guidance on how to manage social media use in the workplace.
