NAISCO, the National Association of State Chief Information Officers, has created a brief on the The Privacy Implications of Instant and Text Messaging Technologies in State Government.
There is some interesting content here - and not just for state agencies. If you use IM or text message to share personal data, you should be aware of the privacy implications - security, archiving of data, etc. Sample state IM policies are provided.
