When it comes to social media in the office, many employers will immediately think of employees wasting time chatting to friends or looking up videos of cats dressed up as Darth Vader. However, there is much more to social media than an endless supply of memes and pointless conversations about Justin Bieber.

I think, despite it's obvious benefits, UK businesses have yet to follow suite of US businesses to encourage employees to become advocates.

Companies such as Buffer are a great example of what can be achieved through advocacy and transparency but this culture still isn't encouraged or embraced enough here.

It's easier to find CEO's and business owners that tweet or contribute to forums than it is to proactively search for employees. We usually experience advocacy from our existing networks, on LinkedIn for example a number of my contacts proactively share brand messaging and write blog posts regarding their industry.

Barry: Thanks for giving a case for using social media in the office environment. Could you mention some companies in the United Kingdom that have been successful with this business culture?
