You might be of the opinion that the social media universe is largely unregulated. We have all witnessed or experienced how nasty this digital landscape can get. So, I wanted to ask the question: “Has the law caught up with social media evolution?”  In today’s show, I’m going to explore the very many answers to that question.  

In today’s episode: 

  • Social media can be a lawless wild west 
  • How the social networks are trying to combat the malicious use of their platforms  
  • What to look out for as a public sector marketing pro? 
  • I interview Sarah Kieran, Managing Partner of and we discuss all of the current legislation to protect organisations and users online
