Excerpt from Post Tweet & Link:

A recent study by the Pew Trust found that the majority of teenagers and very young adults rarely email or use instant messaging because texting, posting and tweeting are so much quicker and easier. (Also, the teens reported that their parents don’t communicate this way, so using social media presumably helps them avoid scoldings about their acronyms, misspellings, and poor grammar.)

These teens will be in the workforce soon, if not already, and even the current workforce is becoming proficient in social media. So it’s a good idea for employers to make sure that they understand their rights and responsibilities in this area.
