This is Adam Brown, Head Of Social Media at Coca-Cola, in a quick 3 minute interview on his new Social Media Policy for Coke. What a job that must have been! The thing I love about this, is that it’s a simple policy (3 pages long), practical and full of common sense while the best part is that Coca-Cola is empowering global staff to become part of the PR & Customer Relations teams.

Below I’ll list out the 10 Principles for Online Spokespeople & a link to download the new social media policy from Coca-Cola.

  1. Be Certified in the Social Media Certification Program.
  2. Follow our Code of Business Conduct and all other Company policies.
  3. Be mindful that you are representing the Company.
  4. Fully disclose your affiliation with the Company.
  5. Keep records.
  6. When in doubt, do not post.
  7. Give credit where credit is due and don’t violate others’ rights.
  8. Be responsible to your work.
  9. Remember that your local posts can have global significance.
  10. Know that the Internet is permanent.
