Ginger says: Using personal profiles for commerical gain is an obvious "no-no", but how many of us realize what other lil surprises Facebook has in store for us?

 

"The takeaway is: beware if you use Facebook for commercial purposes of any kind. You could lose important rights to your intellectual property and inadvertently assume new liabilities that leave you vulnerable to legal and financial claims."

Job Search - Know social media rules

Here's something else that should make you think twice about online venting. Even in a "closed" Facebook group, your comment can be part of a screen shot emailed by another group member to your boss. So what's thought to be "private" has become the opposite. Good luck keeping your job after that gets out.
The bottom line becomes this: If it's something you wouldn't say while sober and in person, don't say it online. And be careful with whom you connect and friend. Social media has become part of the fabric of today's society. Embrace it, but do so wisely and make it work for you, not against you. Good luck!

Social Media Experts – How to spot the fake ones | Social Media Maven | Scoop.it
The rising popularity of social media has led to growing recognition of its use to companies and the need to incorporate social media into business plans.

New Sky News social media policy would cripple journalists working on the real-time Web of 2012

New Sky News social media policy would cripple journalists working on the real-time Web of 2012 | Social Media Maven | Scoop.it
If you’re on a beat, you want to be THE source for news on it. Generally, that means you’ll get beaten on being first to a story. No worries: RT them, then blog it, and link in articles. Over time, people (and algorithms) will value you for that work.

Any entity that distributes content online — whether they’re in the media, government, academia, nonprofit or other organizations, needs to be thinking about search engine optimization (SEO) and social media optimization (SMO) in 2012. Any policies that force journalists into internal silos will eviscerate that capability.

A RT is social media currency. Instructing journalists not to give them out where deserved is like sending them into a conflict or disaster zone with no funds for a fixer, fuel or food. It’s not just bad form. It’s bad business.
