“We are the best bank in the world!” “We are launching a new product but don’t let our investors know!” Ever see these tweets out in the Twitterverse? In the world of regulated industries like financial services, healthcare, pharmaceuticals, bio-tech, and even children’s entertainment, there are a myriad of governmental groups, regulators, and advocates looking over your shoulder. They’re watching what you post on your company’s social channels. So are your company’s lawyers.

Join SMCLA as we delve into the maze of being a social media professional in a regulated industry! What are the most difficult industries to incorporate social media? How many layers of approvals do your messages have to get through before posting?
