This week you will learn about Social Media and the liabilities and risks from a legal perspective. Social media is defined as electronic communication (including the Internet or network systems) where participants communicate and share ideas, information, personal messages and other content (i.e., music or videos).
A common example is an employer restricting the use of social media both with the content shared by employees and access to social media through work computers.
Jamal works from home almost every day and decides tolog in his social media platform on his work computer. He comments and likes some posts and pictures while logged in. The HR handbook states that employees are not allowed to use company computers for social media use. Are there any liabilities to Jamal or the employer from his actions? Why or why not?
