Does your health department have a social media policy? If there’s not an official, written policy, are there implicit guidelines or unwritten rules? Or maybe you have your own rules and assumptions?
We’re curious to hear about your experiences and thoughts on the subject.
Below, I’ve listed a couple of related resources you might find relevant. The first is a general health care (as opposed to public health) example from Kaiser Permanente. They have made their social media policy document public in case others find it helpful as they think about developing a social media policy for their own organization.

Also, I recently heard about a tool that can be used to develop an organizational social media policy. It drafts a social policy statement based on answers to a questionnaire. Is anyone interested in testing it out? It would be great to know if this tool might be helpful for public health departments!

We'd love to year about your experience (or lack thereof!) with social media policies!
