The rapid growth of social media technologies combined with their ease of use and pervasiveness make them attractive channels of communication. However, these tools also hold the possibility of a host of unintended consequences.
To help you identify and avoid potential issues, we have compiled these guidelines. They are examples of best practices from various institutions and are intended to help you understand, from a wide range of perspectives, the implications of participating in social media.
For example, there is the potential for misinterpretation of the relationship or the potential of sharing protected information.
Relationships such as faculty-student, supervisor-subordinate, and staff-student merit close consideration of the implications and the nature of the social interaction. The following are some guidelines to follow in these cases. Employees are encouraged to share College news and events that are a matter of public record with their family and friends.

If the content of your message would not be acceptable for face-to-face conversation, over the telephone, or in another medium, it will not be acceptable for a social networking site.
Ask yourself, would I want to see this published in the newspaper or posted on a billboard tomorrow or 10 years from now? Be Aware of Liability You are personally responsible for the content you publish on blogs, wikis, or any other form of user-generated content.
Individual bloggers have been held liable for commentary deemed to be copyright infringement, defamatory, proprietary, libelous, or obscene as defined by the courts.
Increasingly, employers are conducting web searches on job candidates before extending offers. Be mindful that what you publish will be public for a long time—be sure that what you post today will not come back to haunt you. Maintain Transparency The line between professional and personal business is sometimes blurred: Be honest about your identity.
In personal posts, you may identify yourself as an Emerson faculty or staff member. However, please be clear that you are sharing your views as an individual, not as a representative of Emerson College.
If you identify yourself as a member of the Emerson community, ensure your profile and related content are consistent with how you wish to present yourself to colleagues. Be a Valued Member If you join a social network, make sure you are contributing valuable insights.
Self-promoting behavior is viewed negatively and can lead to you being banned from websites or groups. Search engines can turn up posts and pictures years after the publication date. Comments can be forwarded or copied.
Archival systems save information even if you delete a post. Only post pictures that you would be comfortable sharing with the general public current and future peers, employers, etc. Take the High Ground If you identify your affiliation with Emerson in your comments, readers may associate you with the College, even with the disclaimer that your views are your own.Shortlisted for the PEN/Diamonstein-Spielvogel Award for the Art of the Essay, Pen American Center One of The Times Higher Education Supplement’s Books of .
