FINALLY! Social NOTworking The Book Is Available for Purchase or Download!!!

I have finally finished my book, Social NOTworking!  For those of you who have not heard me speak on this topic, I wrote about Social NOTworking for employers and HR so that you can help your companies EMBRACE Social Media in the workplace and still protect the company from Social Media related LAWSUITS.

It is chalk full of practical advice and guidance, especially for the HR professional who is often the person in the organization who is faced with "the dark side" of Social Media abuse when employees do not follow the "rules."  If your company doesn't have rules about Social Media, Social NOTworking also includes my Sample Social Media Policy and all the tips you will need to draft your own policy.

I truly enjoyed the process of writing this book.  I hope that you will enjoy it.  You can always download the first chapter free, but if you decide to buy it, please use the discount code SOCIAL to receive a 15% discount.  I'm so grateful for your continued support.
