SEC disclosure in the age of social media
How is the SEC revising its disclosure rules to reflect the increasing importance of social media channels like Twitter and Facebook? More profoundly, how is this new technology changing the very meaning of “disclosure”? These are some of the questions addressed by a recent post on LexisNexis’ “real law” website. The article not only gives an overview of best practices for publicly traded companies in the age of social media, but it also gives a brief history of the evolving relationship between communication and business. A worthwhile read.
