7 Important Takeaways From The New
1983 Federal Social Media Law Standards
  • The U.S. Supreme Court classifies Social Media is a "high liability" HR topic, not just a public relations Issue.

  • Social Media policies have no teeth in court unless you can prove it's enforced with expert social media liability training for all employees. Courts reject verbal warnings as adequate 1983.

  • Busy in-house attorney don't qualify in court as social media law experts that can deliver specialized social media liability training to employees.

  • You must prove that your training instructor was a licensed social media attorney specialist and the class workbooks contained the proper case law and legal analysis of the hidden liabilities and nuances in the new social media speech laws.

  • Social Media policies and training have serious constitutional and civil rights impact on others. Non-lawyer PIOs and social media managers are exposed to "unlicensed practice of law claims" for writing social media policies and conducting social media training without teaming up with an experienced social media attorney specialist.

  • Courts consider it negligence to use boilerplate social media policies, even from reputable policy services and associations, and not inquire whether the social media policy drafter was an attorney who specializes in social media law.

  • Insurance doesn't cover the loss of public trust and decision-makers are held personally liable for failing to provide employees outside expert social media liability training when the need was so obvious.

Why would you expose PIOs and social media managers to "unlicensed practice of law claims" by having them write social media policies and train employees?
* See Sperry v. Florida 375 U.S. 379 (1963) A non-lawyer can't draft a serious legal document that impacts constitutional and civil rights of others. Social media policies impact the free speech rights under the First Amendment and other civil rights.
La La Land Attitudes That Destroy Careers
Ignite Costly Lawsuits, And Destroy Public Trust
  • I don't care if the new 1983 federal standards require social media liability training for all employees, we give verbal warnings, that's good enough.

  • Our attorney, PIO, and social media manger have the same expertise as a 30 year nationally recognized digital media attorney specialist.

  • We can't afford $9 per person for expert social media law training.
