Social Media Policy announcement
Today, January 26, 2013, the Board of Directors met in the Kingdom of Atenveldt, a vote was taken on a policy that several of us in this Kingdom sent input to. It was a success!
Re-posting from the Society FB page:
Greetings all from Lord Tobias Morgan, Deputy Society Seneschal for Social Media. As you may have heard, the new Social Media Policy was approved at today’s Board meeting. We will be publishing it online this week and I will personally be in contact with the Kingdom Seneschals and Webministers to directly distribute a copy, along with recommendations for implementation and where to go from here for them and their branch officers. I will post a subsequent notice when it is available for public download (please hold off on personal requests for the SMP, and if you’re a branch officer, give your kingdom time to get it sent down to you).
Later this week, once the policy has been out for a few days and people have time to digest it, I will host a Q&A session for people to ask questions and get advice on how to use social media for their branches and events.
More than anything else, the message I want to put out about SCA Social Media is this: we WANT you to use it, but we want you to use it responsibly. The policy gives you the tools to do that. If you have any questions (besides hey social dude, gimme my copy now!), feel free to contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org, message me here on Facebook, or tweet me @SCAsocial.
Thank you to everyone who provided work, commentary, and editing on the policy over the past year.
