    more from this reviewer

    I believe that anyone who is involved in social networking would find the legal information provided in this book valuable.

    This information is directed at human resource managers or business managers, for use in developing company policies and writing employee handbooks. But, as I have done some technical writing in my past, I found this book to be a valuable source of information and resource as well.

    The manual would also be valuable for every business professional, to educate themselves in the law and help themselves understand how to best protect not only their business and profession, but their personal lives.

    I also believe that anyone who is involved in social networking would find the legal information provided in this book valuable. As pointed out by the author, what someone does in their personal life often intersects with their professional life. This material provides insight into how best to proactively manage both.
