  1. Nice post Michael-I expect we’ll see more and more about Social Governance in the coming weeks and months. Can certainly be a tricky thing.

  2. This is a great list of resources; it’s always helpful to have more sources for sample guidelines. We’ve been beating this drum for our clients for a while now (see our post on the topic here — http://blog.cdginteractive.com/my_weblog/2009/03/rules-of-engagement-social-media-style.html).

  3. Heidi,
