But Comply Socially is NOT providing legal advice, determining “best practices,” or telling you what to say or do. The course is provided for informational purposes only.
One of the real values of social media is that it is less formal, more personal, spontaneous and real. Comply Socially is here to educate you so you can use social media in the ways that work for you.
There is no way for us to anticipate or discuss every situation that might arise. If you have a question on what to do, or how to handle something, talk to someone familiar with the legal and practical issues of your situation.
Different states, cities, and companies have different laws and rules that apply. If you're not sure, ask before you act.
