IT Business Edge editor Lora Bentley has kept a close eye over the past year on social networking policies in the workplace. In a recent post, Bentley touches on government social networking policies. It turns out, there's not much there. Social networking is a foreign concept to many government bodies, Bentley says.

 

Nonetheless, a few state governments and military branches address social media use. In addition, on the other side of the Atlantic, the British government has developed a 20-page template for leveraging Twitter to get government messages out. But a majority of local, state and national government agencies have yet to adopt acceptable-use policies.

 

The Knowledge Network has several examples of social networking policies that address Twitter, Facebook and other social media outlets.
