Just The Facts About Workplace Social Media

Social Media at Work

I’m captivated by infographics.  They, in my mind are the preferred alternative to boring reports and bullet-filled craptastic powerpoint presentations.  For me an infographic is a great way to explain a point of view or organize a group of interesting facts and data points designed to please the eye.  Kind of like how social media is the new alternative to email.

Just The Facts About Workplace Social Media

I’m pretty passionate about social media in the workplace.  Last week I flew to New York City to speak at Jeff Pulver’s BrandsConf and this week I’m traveling to San Diego where I’m speaking and training a group of employment law attorneys on social media and its place in the workplace.  But before I hop on that plane, I wanted to leave you as well as your senior leaders with an infographic designed to discuss social media and its place in the workplace.

The infographic is made to view, share, and generate conversations.  Feel free to print, post, and forward as way to help explain, demonstrate, and discuss social media at work.

      Thanks Lauri,

      It was fun to put together. There is not a lot of information easily available about how to create an infographic. I’m not an expert but I might just put a blog post together with dimensions and how to go about it.

    Great infographic! I still have a hard time believing how high the percentage of companies still not allowing social media at work is. That is hopefully a percentage that will continue to decrease over time.

      My gut feeling is that this number will continue to increase. There is more awareness about how it is being used. The fact that I am speaking to employment law attorneys this week is testament to the fact. They would have not wanted to talk to me about social media and its use 1 year or even 2 years ago. They were still in denial that is was going to become a mainstay in our culture.

      Thanks for the comment and sharing the infographic.

    Excellent post. It still amazes me how many companies don’t have a social media (or even an Internet usage) training/policies. I love the infographic, by the way.

      Thanks Bree. This was my first stab at infographics. Personally, I think most are too cluttered. It’s important to have white space so one can digest that actual information being presented.
