Disclaimer: The purpose of this publication is to provide guidelines and suggestions to assist agencies in designing and maintaining their social networking accounts. Though this publication does not contain formal rules or government policies, DAS' ongoing development of formal policies will likely utilize the principles and suggestions that this publication contains. DAS encourages agencies to follow their respective existing policies in setting up and maintaining social networking accounts. Also, DAS strongly urges agencies to utilize state-owned e-mail accounts -- not private personal accounts -- when registering on social networking Web sites. Social media is constantly changing.
