Protect Your Company From Rogue Employees & Social Media Meltdowns

Posted by Emily Lange Rodecker on August 1, 2013

Your employees are often your greatest brand ambassadors.

So if they want to talk about your company on their social media channels, we say “Let them!”

Hashtags haven’t always been present on social media. The first hashtag was introduced in August 2007 by Chris Messina, an open source and open standards advocate, as a means to identify a certain group (#BarCamp).
