The pwcom blog is moving

After six years of blogging with TypePad, I have just migrated my technology blog ExtranetEvolution.com to a new blog platform (a self-hosted installation of WordPress). I am also using the same platform for my website pwcom.co.uk and for this blog (run on WordPress.com). I hope you like the look and feel of the new site(s).

I will not be adding any new posts here – instead please click through to the new pwcom blog.

If you have linked to this blog, please redirect your link to the new blog address: http://blog.pwcom.co.uk/. And if you have subscribed to this blog, I hope you will do the same for the new one.

Existing content from this site has been migrated. I am working through the new site to ensure that all the internal links work on the new domain, and to ensure images and other embedded content (YouTube video, SlideShare presentations, etc ) are also reproduced pretty much as they were. Please let me know if you find anything broken, etc.

This site will remain up for a few weeks, but I will eventually take it down to avoid confusing visitors (and Google) with duplicate content.

Why social media bans won’t work

faceblockPerhaps more than half of all construction organisations prohibit employee access to social media sites such as Facebook, YouTube and Twitter.

I think such blanket bans are often overkill. Far better, surely, to check when employees are using such sites, and how much, and tackle any perceived abuse on a case by case basis.

The whole blog post is now at http://www.blog.pwcom.co.uk/2009/10/02/why-social-media-bans-wont-work/
