XXI. SOCIAL MEDIA GUIDELINES


A C C O U N T S
All Student Voice employees are encouraged to have accounts on social networks. Social media
is an integral part of our brand and public culture, so it is therefore recommended that
employees take part in personal and professional social engagement. Employees must identify
themselves as being members of Student Voice if they are using their accounts for work in any
way.
Employees do not have to include Student Voice in Twitter or other usernames, but should
mention the organization somewhere in their account description. In addition, all social profile
pictures must be respectable in caliber. There should be no textual or visual indication of illegal
activities in photos. Posting Student Voice proprietary or confidential material on social
networks is prohibited. Employees may not include political affiliations in their profiles and
should not make any postings that express politically radical views.

O P IN IO N
Employees must be aware that opinions they express may damage the Student Voice
reputation as a non-partisan organization and student movement. Student Voice employees
must refrain from declaring their views on contentious public issues in any public forum and
must not take part in trash-talk about internal matters concerning team members, supervisors
or other Student Voice initiatives on social media. If an employee of STUDENT VOICE INC. has
an issue or problem with their online presence, all questions should be directed to the Director
of Public Relations. If the issue cannot be rectified between the aforementioned party and the
Director of Public Relations, the issue should then be brought to the attention of the Executive
Director. Such speech reflects badly on STUDENT VOICE INC. and will receive corrective action.

P R IV A C Y
Employees should be mindful that any opinions or personal information they disclose about
themselves or colleagues may be linked to Student Voice, even if employees restrict their pages
to privacy settings. While STUDENT VOICE INC. recommends that employees customize their
privacy settings on Facebook to determine what they share and with whom, we expect
employees to exhibit respectable behavior on social media and to refrain from partaking in
illegal activity (i.e. underage drinking and smoking, illegal drug use, defamation, etc.) that may
be displayed on social networks. Remember: nothing is truly private on the Internet, and what
you post has a direct reflection on Student Voice and its objectives.

I N T E R A C T IN G W IT H U S E R S
Student Voice is strongly in favor of engaging with those who consume and share our content.
Employees should feel free to ask their followers on social networks for their opinions on

2004 National Council of Nonprofit Associations May be duplicated, with attribution, by charitable organizations.

Student Voice initiatives or to put out a call for users willing to share student voice stories or
photos relevant to our cause. Employees are also encouraged to answer questions that are
directed their way on social media as long as they answer in a way thats consistent with the
Student Voice mission, vision and purpose and is within the realm of the Student Voice Social
Media Guidelines.
Most feedback Student Voice receives is constructive, and any substantive criticism of our
content should be taken seriously. Responses to our audience should be guided by the nature
of the comments that come in and should be respectful and thoughtful in diction, tone and
syntax. However, it is best to avoid protracted back-and-forth exchanges with angry people that
become less constructive with each new round. Abusive, prejudiced, obscene and/or racist
comments should be noted and reported to the Director of Public Relations with documented
proof of the exchange. Employees are asked to refrain from responding to such commentary.
Any response we make to a reader or viewer could go public. Email, Facebook messages and
Twitter direct messages may feel like private communications, but may easily find their way to
blogs, political groups, attorneys and others. In the case of a post or image that stirs significant
controversy, the owner of the post should notify the Director of Pubic Relations and Business
Manager for advice. A Student Voice attorney should review any incoming messages that raise
the possibility of legal action before a response is made.
If you have any questions regarding any of the policy guidelines listed above, please contact
your supervisor, or the Executive Director.
