Request for Corporate Policy Template on Employees Use of Social Networks

A hot topic of HR professional groups like the Society of Human Resource Professionals (SHRM), is the need for corporations to publish a written policy providing employees guidance on the acceptable use of social networks. These policies are not simply limited to employees use of corporate PCs and corporate internet f to access one's LinkedIn or FaceBook account during the workday. The more challenging issue is when employees (particularly of public companies) comment on their social networks about work related activity (e.g.,we are busy working on a major acquisition") or specifically about a key employee (e.g., the rumor mill has it that our CEO is going to get fired next month). Can anyone share a Best Practices template that addresses the above topic? Some employee training firm that produces a 15 minute video on this topic for use at employee training sessions will make a lot of money as this topic will never be black and white just like the sexual harrassment training videos we have all sat through.
