- Mark Toth at Manpower Employment Blawg highlights a U.S. Chamber of Commerce study that analyzes 129 social-media-related National Labor Relations Board cases.
- North of the border, Attorneys Jennifer Bond and George Waggot offer some advice on social media policies that work best.
- Devin Brown on CBSnews.com reports that there's a new law in Missouri that makes it illegal for teachers to friend students on social networks.
- Jon Hyman at the Ohio Employer's Law Blog has the latest stats on how employers are using social media to hire online (h/t Eve Tahmincioglu)
- Entrepreneur Magazine offers some do's and don't on using social media to screen new hires. The article quotes some Philadelphia attorney named Eric B. Myers. Attorney Myers identifies himself as a publisher of this blog. And if I see this Myers guy on the streets of Philly, Imma kick his ass.
Finally, happy birthday to my beautiful wife Carly. She turns 30 today.
