Social Media Series Webinar 2: Creating Your Social Media Policy

Recorded on October 28, 2013

From Facebook to Twitter to LinkedIn, legal aid organizations are flocking to social media, but not all are prepared for the challenges and ramifications of what is posted and how to manage the process. Who is allowed to post?  What should you say?  What should you not say? How do you respond if someone says something positive or negative about your organization? How do you make use of what social media offers while protecting your legal aid organization, your clients, and your supporters?

A good social media policy will provide clear guidelines as to your legal aid organization’s social media values and what staff should and shouldn’t do when posting and interacting with the community.  In this webinar, Andrea Berry of Idealware will demonstrate how the process of constructing a social media policy is as important for your organization as the product itself.
