Bill Pray blogged today on the Supreme Court's decision to take on a case involving the privacy rights of an employee's use of a government-provided mobile device for personal text messaging. This case further highlights the growing concerns around privacy and compliance as companies embrace emerging communications applications. In almost every conversation I've had with end-user organizations the topic of compliance is front and center as they evaluate tools such as SMS, Instant Messaging, Microblogging, and social computing platforms. Our recent SRO session at Enterprise 2.0 in Boston explored many of these issues as well. Bottom line is that its wise to involve your governance and compliance officers early on in as you develop your enterprise 2.0 strategy.
