Intel has an amazingly simple and innovative website. If you click on the “communities” tab it will take you to an unbelievable array of social media sites within their company. They have really put a ton of thought into this. There are so many social media outlets to choose from on their single website. It is amazing. I think this could really be a good example of putting the text book into practice. I encourage all to view the Intel.com site, and click on the open port IT community tab, for example, under communities, and look at how it is set up and how easy it is to read and access (http://communities.intel.com/community/openportit). Really great stuff.
This was an interesting article. It won’t be easy. Check it out.
This site has all of the internet injustices and mayhem that is going on right now. I think we all owe it to ourselves to read up on the Demand Progress Campaigns. Nobody is blogging on this stuff and I am surprised. Maybe it is because we are all tired and its late in the school year. Don’t check out yet. This site has piles of stuff to blog about when it comes to social media, the internet, and what the government has in store for us. IT IS INFURIATING! Check it out. I would be interested to see what others think. Click on “campaigns” when you get to their page.
thanks to all.
A woman in Oregon was fired from a health foods market for posting slanderous things on facebook. She never mentioned the name of the company and there was no foul language. The company claims there was more to firing her but during the confrontation, she was shown a stack of printed pages from her facebook page.
My opinion on this is: if we go the way of having to be careful and allow this to happen, who knows where it will go. This woman may have been a bad employee in other ways. That is irrelevant. We must be able to talk about our work with others. We as underpaid or even fairly paid employees should be able to vent. A company should not have the right to stop our personal conversations about anything reasonable in our private lives. Pretty soon, we will be fired for in-person conversations. Facebook should say more about this. It is just not right. No employer should ever be able to bring a stapled stack of my facebook pages to my firing. What does everyone else think?
