The Texas Department of Information Resources (DIR) has posted a draft of a proposed Social Media Policy intended to guide state agencies and institutions of higher education in their use of social media tools to conduct official state business and communicate with citizens.
Here at the Health Science Center, we will be gathering input from faculty, staff and students, and submitting a set of comments as an institution. However, the document appears on DIR’s “Posted for Review” page, and the DIR invites feedback from the public (via email to firstname.lastname@example.org) through March 14, 2012. So in the interest of promoting discussion and feedback, I am posting the draft here so all of you can check it out.
What do you think? What strengths and/or concerns do you see?
