Technology is great! It allows us to do things more easily and faster than ever before. For businesses, that means employees can do their jobs more easily, which saves time and money. On the other hand, with this new technology comes new guidelines, or media rules, on how to use it properly in the workplace. Without some guidelines in place, any advantage that could be gained will be lost when employees use technology inappropriately.
