Whether you’re a corporation, news organization, non-profit or government agency, it’s a good idea to head off any potential problems or conflicts of interest, real or perceived, by establishing a set of Social Media policies and guidelines to protect yourself, your business and your employees.

SocialMedia.biz published a list of very helpful guidelines along with a Social Media Toolkit courtesy of the Social Media Business Council to help you navigate these tricky waters.  They also published a list of actual Social Media corporate guidelines from companies such as IBM, SUN, Netflix, Porter Novelli, General Motors and others.
