8 Tips for Social Business Part 6 – Secure Profiles

Secure Profile Social Business
Secure Profiles Fear over losing control is an understandable barrier to implementing social media across an organisation. It is important to note that mistakes are preventable. In many popular cases the missteps were handled well and the damage to each organisation was more along the lines of temporary embarrassment than anything permanent, but why not stop them before they occur?

Secure Profiles

Hootsuite developed Secure Profiles specifically in response to instances like these to put a solid measure of prevention in place. This provides an extra prompt when publishing to important branded accounts, preventing errant posts intended for personal accounts.

Limited Permissions is another unique security feature. Hootsuite offers multiple levels of account access and places limits on which team members can participate in outbound social conversation directly. The Limited Permissions puts control over publishing firmly in the hands of those who are most trusted. Your social tools should too.

Team members are also easily added and removed as organisations expand and contract. Removal is instantaneous in the event that a team member isn’t exiting on good terms. The now infamous Marc Jacobs intl intern meltdown where CEO, Robert Duffy was described as a “tyrant” by an over- worked intern would have been prevented by using Hootsuite’s Limited Permissions setting to limit his access to publish without approval.
