Social Media Policy
The purpose of this policy is to address the quickly growing and changing landscape of the Internet, which also covers the use of Social Media or “Web 2.0.” These changes have affected the means by which residents communicate and obtain information online. Departments within the City of Manhattan Beach (“City”) may consider using social media tools to reach a broader audience. The use of social media outlets is encouraged to further the goals of the City and the objectives of its departments, where appropriate.
Although beneficial, the use of social media presents challenges. This policy establishes a city-wide social media policy intended to address those challenges and guide all City of Manhattan Beach social media usage.
This policy applies to all City Departments and all City employees who use social media sites and/or technology on behalf of the City. All preexisting and proposed social medial websites and online community accounts created by City employees on behalf of the City during the course and scope of their employment are subject to this policy.
