Acas code on social media

The use of social media in the workplace is a problem for businesses that's just going to get bigger and bigger - like, I suppose, the problem of giving workers access to telephones once was. The capacity for mischief is much greater with social media, though. It's not just the amount of time people might spend at work on Twitter, Facebook or their own blogs: it's the liability they could create for their employers when they write something bad, and it's the damage they might cause to their employers' reputations.
Acas (I don't know whether to put it in capitals or not: I can still remember when it was the Advisory, Conciliation and Arbitration Service, which it still seems to be although it appears to prefer the trendy acronym) has produced a guide which employers should find useful to help them find a way through this maze.
