In contrast, Sun Microsystems (Phipps’ current employer) has a policy of closing posts/blogs when staff depart, but not rewriting history.
Revisionism is very Orwell’s 1984, but an issue for public relations practitioners to consider. It is vital to monitor and update information on corporate sites, but should this include blogs, which are meant to be a conversation at a particular point in time. A note could be made clarifying that someone had left the organisation or providing up to date information, but I tend towards not revising postings.
Another thing to consider in the corporate blogging policy?
