5075% of employers say their business has no formal policy instructing employees on the appropriate use of social networking sites on the job.

Every employee is a marketing representative of your organization. Have you defined what content is OK to post? What is off-limits? Have you educated your team how to optimize their privacy settings and how keep their personal profiles and friends separate?
