Social Media Protocol

The following items are part of company policy:
  • NEVER provide confidential or other proprietary information, if it is not clear, refer to senior management
  • NEVER use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, or engage in any online conduct that would not be acceptable at work.
  • Do not cite or refer to the firm’s clients, partners, or suppliers without their approval.
  • Identify yourself by name and, when relevant, your role, when you discuss your company or matters relating to it.
  • Do not violate copyright, fair use, or financial disclosure laws.  When you quote somebody, link back to the source if possible.
  • Show proper consideration for others’ privacy and for sensitivities that may exist concerning politics and religion
The following items are etiquette tips on how to effectively handle private and business accounts:
  • Do not write in the first-person plural (e.g. “we”, “us”, “our”). Make it clear you speak for yourself and your community and not on behalf of your firm.
  • Be mindful that whatever you publish will be public for a long time, possibly for your entire career.
  • Make certain that your online profiles and related content are consistent with how you wish to present yourself to colleagues and clients.
  • Never assume that posting anonymously will keep your true identity secret if you publish inappropriate comments and content.
  • Take personal responsibility for the content that you publish on blogs, wikis, or any other public forum.
  • The Ingressive brand is represented by its people and what you publish will inevitably reflect on that brand.
  • Do your best to add value by providing worthwhile information and perspective rather than mere opinion and bluster
