A number of people have asked me of late, “What is the social media policy for the diocese?” That’s a good question. We are working on one at the present time and it is a challenge and a balance between making it a living document/policy and not to go overboard with rules and “what ifs”. Every organization has its own variants of policy and the church is no different. Our social media policy may not work for, say Coca-Cola, and vice-versa.
Province III of the Episcopal Church have come up with something that is a good starting point for the church. Building Faith, a blog moderated by Sharon Ely Pearson has a post that I offer as a beginning to that conversation called Social Media: Safe Church. Check it out.
