Having a social media account for your business is a great way to connect with your customers. However, it is important to be aware that your social media account can lead to a lawsuit if it is not handled correctly. Keep these tips in mind to ensure that you do not get sued for what is on your social media site.

  • Never write a false statement about someone. Even if you mean it as a joke, a false statement can be considered libel and can lead to a lawsuit.
  • Be careful about what you post. Always double-check everything before you post it to ensure that it does not include any private information.
  • Watch out for copyrights and trademarks. Whenever posting a picture, make sure that it does not infringe on the copyright or trademark of another company.

Having the right business insurance policy can protect you against any lawsuit associated with your social media account. For all of your business insurance needs throughout Minnesota, contact North Central Insurance.
