Building on this idea, if industry leaders in the fields of Marketing and PR are not allowed to blog, how are they expected to be an expert on the matter? What if these same executives were still not able to use email. Imagine how far they would need to come to catch up with the rest of the world. Until I began writing this blog, it was difficult for me to fully understand blogging ( I still have a lot to learn). Also, blogging is a way of sparking debate, and spreading knowledge. Why would companies want to stifle this creative ground? Those participating in blogging communities can easily monitor what is being said.
- Should employees be allowed to Blog?
- If so does it need to be in their free time, or can it take place at work
- Should their be guidelines? How strict?
- Does it depend on the type of company (public, private, non-profit)?
