Social media

University encourages colleagues to engage, collaborate and innovate using social media, but it is important to be aware of the potential impact of actions and engagements on individuals and the organisations they represent.

The social media policy is designed to help you steer a safe and responsible path and provide an overview of the main points to consider when creating and managing social media channels, including:

  • personal responsibilities when creating social media content
  • how to manage comments and moderation issues
  • branding and identity
  • legal considerations
  • additional sources of support and advice
