Social Media Guidance

This guidance has been developed to encourage good practice in the use of social media, and to assist partner-agencies of the BBSCB to proactively address issues around the misuse of Social Media.

The purpose of this guidance is to provide a building block for organisations to develop their own advice and guidance, which Includes;-

  • safer working practice in relation to the use of social media,
  • keeping personal and professional lives separate,
  • keeping safe when using electronic media and
  • adopting responsible behaviour that should protect staff from putting themselves and their career at risk.

 

This document is guidance only, it is not intended to interfere in an employees private life, but to help avoid work and private lives clashing in inappropriate ways because of social networking activities. There is also a model policy contained within the guidance on page 19 which could assist in writing your own Social Media Policy. Please note that the guidance is not intended to replace individual Agencies Policy Guidance and/or Single Agency internal policies around Social Media.

This guidance was developed by Northumberland LSCB and Bedford Borough LSCB have adopted it.
