@Wendy - That is most definitely part of the challenge, not just for marketers, but also for those of us who are working to increase organizational communication and performance.

Employees as brand champions from each division based on their understanding of Vision, Mission, Values and ability to articulate such via imagery and written word. Those who don't meet the same criteria in their private social media activities should not engage on behalf of the company. The current state of Social, barring Vine and YouTube, is primarily focused on writing skills and thus can be reviewed and documented against brand standards. Training has to become part of the job for those in public-facing roles - training about corporate position, corporate secrets, online etiquette, the state of SEO, crisis procedures and time management.
