Question

A positive employee cuure, feeling of freedom and privacy are all important aspects in the social media game.

And most companies do want their employees to post positive things about their company. I agree that a company would have a challenging time restricting the posts of a personal nature by there employees. But, this enforcement needs to be metered on a somewhat graduated scale. For example, if Joe Smith, software development posts vacation pictures during a company crisis, no one will probably notice, or care for that matter. On the other hand, if the CEO posts pictures of his family on the beach with a fruity beverage during the same crisis, the reaction would probably be very different.

So, it would seem that with increased responsibility comes increased restriction on certain freedoms.

What are your thoughts on this?
