Not having a social media policy in your community can lead to uncomfortable, sometimes harmful, conflicts.
I was asked recently to draft a sample policy for a community to consider and then adapt. Here is my latest version of that draft. If your community has a social media or website presence, you’re free to use this as your first draft.
You’ll want to use this as a working document, rather than something to adopt without community involvement. It is through the process of discussion and decision-making in your community that the policy becomes a living policy that guides interactions online.
