Social Media Ethics

Social Media Ethics

The ethical challenges of social media in the current workforce.

In a technology driven workforce, are there ethical dilemmas when it comes to social media? Should companies choose to use social media to improve their brand or are the hazards of losing privacy too costly? With the increased usage of social media across the world it is important to understand the costs that correspond to this communication platform.
