    Excellent infographic. I agree with you that there's a need to have social media policies in place to govern how people relate through social media.

    This is a good visual guideline for employers and so as employees to refer to.

    This is the best visual and statistical representation of the emerging demand / need for social media compliance I have seen.  These tools are evolving from "nice to have" to "must have" for companies who want to preserve their online reputations.

    Wonderful infographic with statics, though social media play a vital role in all aspects but health care organizations should consider these risks mentioned and come up with an explicit and well defined policy.
