This strip really speaks to me. My boss insisted that everyone in the office get on Facebook in an effort to stay better connected. Needless to say we used it more for non-business purposes than we should have. This prompted my boss to ask me to write up a new policy that forbids the use of social networking sites during office hours (a policy which has since gone company wide). Flash forward a few weeks when my boss discoveries that social networking sites are a great way to advertise to free, she asks me to create a Twitter and Facebook account for our company. Great idea boss, except we are forbidden from using such sites due to the company policy (which I wrote) due to the over use of FB pages (which she insisted we create.)
Social Marketing is the future of online marketing....seems like the future is already here, Time to unleash Facebook and Twitter at all offices!!!!!! nowadays you want your Employees to tweet and social about your company!!!
It's funny how (lowly) employees (who actually do the work) of a largish company think how lame their company is, and how managers think how lame their employees are.
In !$%*!$% Rhyming Slang "lame" is somewhat rude: "lame duck" rhymes with something as "frog" and toad rhymes with road, "dog" and bone rhymes with phone, "porky" pies - lies, "mince" pies - eyes, "butcher's" hook - look, ; although "rubber" duck is luck.
