Today at 7 pm my PR client Jessica Miller Merrell? with Blogging4Jobs.com will be debating with an attorney about the benefits and implications of using Social Media at Work. Obviously, as a social media advocate who has been using these tools before case law ever existed, I’m an advocate of social media at work.

Ready for hot debate? Lets create some BUZZ!
(1) the potential for legal liability
(2) the right to privacy
(3) other potential negative consequences
I will be talking about the following:
(1) monitoring obstacles and tools to use
(2) community, collaboration, professional development in the workplace
(3) social media as every day use with a focus on mobile usage
How can you participate?
Here is what Jessica said:
“The debate takes place at UCO starting at 7:00 PM CST in the Business Building on the 1st floor. I’d love to demonstrate the power of social media with a focus on community and crowdsourcing. I will host a one hour chat, Social Media at Work or #smwork. During the course of the hour while we are debating, I will have the big screen stream the twitter #smwork Twitter stream. I will pose a series of 5 questions over the course of the hour to get the ball rolling. There are no rules and I encourage innovation, collaboration, and creativity.”
