This Micro-Course provides some important tips for employees on using social media in a safe and responsible way.


Social media has become an indispensible means of keeping in touch with our family and friends, conducting professional networking and showcasing our talent. But incautious use of social media can also land us in hot water if we’re not careful – particularly with our employer.

This Micro-Course examines the risks of inappropriate social media use, provides an overview of relevant aspects of the law and gives best practice guidelines for the safe and responsible use of social media platforms at work and outside.
