Today, I began to serious think about corporate social media policies, so I made my way over to the largest keeper of social media policies at SocialMediaGovernance.com. As I read them, it made sense to me. Most of these companies embrace social media and understand social media. They understand that it is social; it’s about sharing, giving, and collaborating. And generally, if a company doesn’t post their policy externally, it is because they don’t really embrace social media or that they don’t fully understand social media or even the future of work and learning.
Among all the social media policies that I have read, even those policies that are not posted externally somewhere, I came across one statement that said, “Social media use is restricted to personal time only.” And on LinkedIn there is an interesting albeit small discussion regarding just this.
So I began thinking. A salaried exempt employee is paid a designated amount of money for time worked. And as I read on one discussion board by Jeremey (smhbbag), “Part-time is full-time, full-time is all the time.” So when is personal time for a salaried full-time employee?
So, how do you measure what you do as personal time versus company time?
