Have you, as a member of the public, seen other government departments that have clearly laid out their social media policies?  Is it a good idea?

I’m presenting a “The Path Towards Increased Government Engagement, A Citizen’s View of Social Media” at the Advanced Learning Institute’s Social Media and Government Conference in Victoria BC September 26-29th. Your feedback will help me to craft my presentation. Thank you!

  1. Several weeks ago I had a post of mine removed from the Facebook of of The Royal BC Museum. When I expressed concern and disappointment I was directed to their communications director who explained he was not a fan of the move either but that as a provincial institution they were bound by the provincial government’s social media policy.

    • That’s interesting to note. Did you get a reason – were your comments inflammatory, provocative, promotional or …..?
