Social Media


IN THIS DAY AND AGE WHEN
PEOPLE GET THEIR NEWS FROM SITES SUCH AS
FACEBOOK AND TWITTER; AND MOVIES AND TV SHOWS
ARE WATCHED MORE ON THE WEB THAN ON TV, IT’S EASY
FOR YOU TO FORGET THAT THERE’S A CODE OF ETHICS
THAT MUST BE FOLLOWED REGARDING SOCIAL MEDIA. NAVADMIN 129/15 DISCUSSES
PERSONAL SOCIAL MEDIA STANDARDS OF CONDUCT DUE
TO THE INCREASED VOLUME OF SOCIAL MEDIA USE. A FEW OF THE ISSUES
ADDRESSED INCLUDE USE OF PERSONAL SOCIAL
MEDIA WHILE ON-DUTY, USE OF SOCIAL MEDIA
FOR JOB SEARCHES, USING YOUR RANK, TITLE AND
POSITION FOR PERSONAL GAIN AND FUNDRAISING FOR
NONPROFIT CHARITABLE ORGANIZATIONS. SOCIAL MEDIA USERS ARE
ENCOURAGED TO INCLUDE A DISCLAIMER CLARIFYING
THAT THEIR COMMUNICATIONS REFLECT ONLY THEIR
PERSONAL VIEWS AND DO NOT NECESSARILY REPRESENT
THEIR AGENCY. IF YOU HAVE FURTHER
QUESTIONS ABOUT SOCIAL MEDIA STANDARDS
OF CONDUCT, VIEW THE NAVADMIN.
