Review the required resources identified for this week on the use of communication and social media guides. Locate and read the posted communication and social media guidelines for your local school system (usually found on the district web site and may be called Internet Policies, or Acceptable Use Guides). Does your school system utilize social media such as supporting an official Facebook page, Twitter account, or an email/text messaging system?
Write a short narrative on what you see as the most common uses of social media in your community and include the following:
- What efforts do you see by area businesses and community groups to ‘brand’ themselves using social media?
- Does this fit with Pew Research you did in Week One?
- Do you feel that the development of a social media presence would help or hinder your initiative or efforts to strengthen and ‘brand’ programs in your community? Why?
Develop a communication guide document that supports you and your community’s position on social media. Be sure to consider the recommendations for designing with flexibility. Also, be sure to support your guidelines with outside sources and include references written in APA format. Attach or link your document to your initial post.
