Employee Blog Guidelines

Today Yahoo! released a standard set of guidelines which are mostly common-sense, keep-out-of-trouble recommendations. The top rule I follow is to not discuss anything that isn’t already public, so it’s clearly common-sense sort of stuff.

I was surprised there was no mention of asking employees to clearly identify on their blog that they work at Yahoo, but maybe that’s not such a big deal. (Disclaimer: I do work at Yahoo!)

Jeremy Zawodny was one of several internal bloggers who provided input and feedback; see his blog for more details and a copy of the policy itself if you’re interested.
