Yahoo Publically Releases Employee Personal Blogging Guidelines

Yahoo recently released their guidelines for personal blogging by their employees. Surprisingly, they are very clear, concise, forward thinking, and helpful.
The document is broken into two sections, Legal Parameters and Best Practice Guidelines, and is mostly common sense. The basic premise is to be intelligent about your posts, be mindful of your legal obligations and coworkers, make sure your facts are accurate, and if a topic generates outside media coverage, don’t be afraid to get Yahoo PR involved to help you out.
It is a great starting point for any company looking to develop corporate blogging guidelines and for your convenience, we’ve provided a quick download for you:
