Sneak Peek

Social networking

The Internet offers many ways to communicate. The most common form of business communication is still email, but other tools can include instant messaging or live chat, telephony and video calling, social networking (such as LinkedIn and Facebook), as well as public short messaging (Twitter), photograph sharing (Instagram, Snapchat), video sharing, message boards and news groups.

These services vary greatly in the amount of privacy and security they offer. Generally there are approved channels for communication used in our company, and you should be aware of and use these methods wherever possible.

Take note

Email is not secret; it is generally not encrypted and can be read by anyone who comes in contact with it, and can be intercepted by third parties.
