Corporate Financiers Still Shunning Social Media Engagement
The inundating popularity of social networking sites means more and more of us are heading online on a daily basis to catch up with friends and family members, and the convenience of such platforms means we are able to communicate our feelings and opinions. Financiers are rather skittish, however, having compliance issue to adhere to, leading to many major financial institutions to simply listen in on social conversations as outlined in this Reuters report.
Convoluted discussions, arbitrary debates and other illicit information tidbits turn financial industries away, with only several major players like Morgan Stanley showing vested interests in daily brouhaha.

The fundamental motive behind curbing an excessive rendezvous on social media at financial services' firms is the risk that advisers let loose in the vast and fast-moving world of social media will stray from their rule-bound world – one world that is consistently monitored by Securities & Exchange Commission officers.

Perhaps this isn’t as odd as it sounds; if your company is viewed positively, you feel better about going to work every day. Even with discussions between financial pros and social media junkies, off the clock means finding new ways of hiking social media popularity to boost your own chances of finding great employment.Continued on the next page
