Are you considering using Social Media to promote your business? Perhaps you have already begun using various Social Media platforms in a business context?
While Social Media started out as sites for individuals to stay in contact with friends and
families or to meet new people, it is now a phenomenon which is very much a part of the
global marketplace. Businesses, small and large alike, are tapping into what has become an
invaluable resource for engaging with consumers. It is a platform for free advertising, it
reaches consumers on a grand scale and it can provide businesses with a unique snapshot of
the market-place and what customers are thinking.
But it is also a legal minefield.
If you are considering or are already using Social Media to promote
your business then you should find out the legal issues that can
arise and learn how to mitigate them.
