Employees With Blogs

In this day of instant information, many of your employees have all kinds of online activities, and can share with the world all kinds of information. Not just on Facebook, Myspace, or Twitter, but they might even go in to great detail by starting up a blog to share their thoughts. This isn't always just something like weight loss success stories either.

So how do businesses deal with employee blogging? First they have to decide whether they NEED to do anything about it, but if they do when should they decide on creating some sort of policy for this? As a person of insane love for freedom of speech I find a lot of this conversation to be rather angering. Of course I can see the need for it in some instances.

Maybe this guy will be able to look at it in a reasonable manner with his advice. I know I can't.
