In a recent post, Shel Holtz adds to the chorus of pundits highlighting the contradictions – and hypocrisy – of executives increasingly embracing social media for marketing or PR but holding back on the employee front. For whatever reason, leaders and communication executives can more easily put aside their fears and take a leap of faith into the digital void outside their companies – which implicitly presumes that employees are more likely to flame the company and abuse the rules than customers, critics, journalists, consumers and even competitors. Can somebody please explain that logic to me?
