Down Under, Corporate Blogs Might be Seen as Liability

Ok, so a few days ago a survey of U.S. CEOs said blogs are useful tools.

But here's an opinion from Down Under (Factiva subscription req'd) in the Australian version of Computerworld saying: "Corporate blogging in Australia has stalled because of a perceived security threat and a belief by employers that an active blogger is a liability." According Hydrasight analyst John Brand "less than 5 percent of organizations in Australia actively use blogs as a corporate tool, with some blogs creating an IT security risk," Computerworld reported.

This article doesn't say where that number comes from, but it could be interesting if different parts of the world view corporate blogs differently.
