wee beastie: Silverstaff: So, the SEC wants copies of all Facebook posts released as formal press releases?

Sounds like a 20th century law colliding with 21st century technology.

No, the SEC doesn't want company representatives making financially material statements over facebook, twitter, youtube or whatever. They want a press release that goes accross the newswires.

I'm a stock analyst with a reputable bank. Our bank has webfilters. I cannot view fb, twitter, youtube, etc. because they are blocked. This means it was selective disclosure, that not everyone could readily see or verify. That is why it is illegal.

1. It wasn't really financially material.
2. Just because your employer denies you access to certain channels of information, that doesn't make them any less public.

This is exactly what the SEC is supposed to do.

Someone needs to write a 140 character forward-looking statement disclaimer.
