Social Media & PR Daily features a story posted on Newsroom Ink on Symantec’s recent study, 2011 Social Media Protection Flash Poll, concerning issues surrounding social media security.

The study supported recent concerns Newsroom Ink has with traditional social media sites such as Facebook, Twitter, Google+ and others.

Recent findings have revealed the pervasive spread of social media within companies, and both the companies and their IT departments have good reason to be worried about potential risks.

A company experiences an average of nine social media incidents a year, such as employees publicly posting confidential information. More than 90 percent of these companies suffer negative consequences that include damage to their reputations, loss of customer trust, data loss and lost revenue.

The 2011 Social Media Protection Flash Poll, commissioned by Symantec Corporation, announced findings which examined how organizations protect themselves from negative consequences of using social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and others.
