Social Media July Book Club Webinar Recap: Navigating Social Media Legal Risks
Last month we introduced our July Book Club feature Navigating Social Media Legal Risks: Safeguarding Your Business by Robert McHale. This topic has proved to be an area often unknown to many small business, entrepreneuers and freelancers simply because they don't have a large legal team to tap for advice. Consider Robert your new go-to social media compliance source, as this book offers a deep dive on frequent legal issues faced by businesses everyday when using social media. From HR compliance to specific sites terms of services (TOS) guidelines and COPPA to defamation, Navigation Social Media Legal Risks serves as a great resource for our burning social media legal questions.
A big thanks to Robert McHale, who joined us yesterday to share highlights from his newest title and educate SMC members on compliance and legal aspects of social media that every social media professional should be fluent in.
Also, Thanks to our Book Club partner Que Publishing, we were able to send copies to several of our chapter leaders and Professional members to review on our behalf. Check out our reviewers main takeaways from Navigating Social Media Legal Risks,
The book deals exclusively with U.S. law, though, as McHale states, the most widely used social media sites – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest, Google+ – are based in the United States, as are the majority of users, so understanding how the U.S. government and courts view social media practice is essential. via SMC Professional Member, Vickie Bates
I think this is the right book to add to my resource list for social media practitioners, social media professionals at all levels, business owners, executives, human resource and talent acquisition staff, and managers of employees. I plan to pass on the books to business associates who are corporate counsel and involved in employment law at their respective Enterprise companies. via SMC Madison Founder, Wendy Soucie
