Social Media...Look Underneath the Hood

I have listened to and read many works by so called, 'social media' experts in Australia recently and there is a glaring gap.  None of them have been providing information as to what the rules, rights and responsibilities are when using the various platforms, such as facebook, twitter, myspace, reverbnation, youtube and the like.

Yes, there are more using social media for business, marketing purposes.  
Yes, more and more believe they are experts (I question this in many cases)
Yes, we live in a different world
Yes, it is important to empower people in the use of social media
Yes, social media is important to business in today's world

AND

No we should not use without knowing exactly what we are signing up for or signing away.
