New CIPR consultation on social media guidelines

New CIPR consultation on social media guidelines

Back in early 2007 the Chartered Institute of Public Relations (CIPR) launched a set of social media guidelines for practitioners using social media.
Life moves on quickly in social media and public relations, so now the institute has another consultation paper out on revisions to the guidelines. It’s now available online at
I had my concerns with the first incarnation of the guidelines (blogged here), so I’ll definitely be taking a good look this time and will be submitting my thoughts to CIPR.
The consultation is asking:

  • Do you believe this document covers the issues highlighted in sufficient depth?
  • Do you believe there are other important issues which should be addressed (and if so, what are they)?

The deadline for comments is 1 November, so if you want to get your voice heard by CIPR make sure you get back to them by then.
