Media and Social Networking Protocol

caebrwyn made this Freedom of Information request to Carmarthenshire Council

This request has been closed to new correspondence from the public body. Contact us if you think it ought be re-opened.

The request was successful.

Dear Mr Tillman,

1. Please can you send me a copy of Carmarthenshire County Council's procedure/policy documents with regards to Media Protocol for staff and Members.

2. Please can you send me a copy of Carmarthenshire County Council's procedure/policy documents with regards to employee and Members access to social networking sites, eg Twitter, Facebook, You Tube and also, specifically, blogs.
Can you also list the reasons why access to any of these sites should be restricted from Council computers.
Please list the Council's definitions of 'inappropriate content'. I presume also that any software used 'automatically' would have to be manually programmed accordingly.

3. Although, as I said, I presume the Council has software to automatically detect 'spam' etc, could you tell me whether the control of any access, including but not exclusively for example, residents access to comment facilities on the Council's Facebook page are carried out manually.

Please respond electronically and contact me if you require further clarification of my request.

Yours faithfully,

J Thompson

FOIA, Carmarthenshire Council
