In my opinion one of the biggest productivity killers today is social media. How can I promote responsible social media usage within an organization? Experiences and thoughts welcome!

One way would be to block access to social media sites during working hours, if your network has that functionality.
Generally blocking social media makes people just go the route of using proxies and other methods to beat the system. A better way to do it is to encourage the use of social media, but also encourage balance, and specify that social media be used only for a certain amount of time/for a certain purpose.
It is a bit difficult to find that balance, especially depending on your office atmosphere, but it can be done with careful moulding of everyone's mindset ;).
P.S. I'm not going to go into long details of how's and why's, because I expect that it would be up to you to choose "how" you go about doing that.
