What happens to social media accounts when employees leave, especially if the employer "used" personal accounts?
Sam Richter has a discussion at “Know More” on the question of “what happens to social media accounts when your employees leave”, Jan. 23, link here.
Some employers encourage employees to use their own Facebook or other social media accounts for corporate purposes with detailed policies as to how to use them, rather than depending just on “branded” employer accounts. But then tricky questions arise when an employee leaves. This almost sounds like the "no personal use of company resources" problem (which started to become very clear during the mainframe age) turned around.
