For Comparison Purposes: The BBC’s Updated Guidance On Social Media
(Editor’s note on July 27, 2017: Click here to go to an updated special section about the do’s and don’t's of social media.)
Because it never hurts to see what others are thinking, here’s a link to the BBC’s just-updated “Social Media Guidance For Staff.”
There’s also a short story about it by BBC News social media editor Chris Hamilton.
You’ll find much in common with NPR’s guidance and with things discussed in previous “Memmos”:
I can hear Stu Seidel echoing this line from the BBC: “A useful summary has always been and remains: ‘Don’t do anything stupid.’ ”
As always, Wright Bryan and the rest of NPR’s social media team are available for guidance, advice and tips. Be sure to follow their posts on the Social Media Desk Tumblr — a.k.a. the Social Sandbox.
