New University Social Media Policy
The university recently released a new, first ever, policy on social media. The policy, Institutional Social Media Accounts for Marketing and Communications Purposes, applies to staff, faculty, student-employees, and other individuals who create and/or maintain institutional social media accounts for university marketing or communications purposes.
All county social media sites should be reviewed for compliance. An audit, in the form of a Qualtrics survey, will be administered in the coming weeks for administrators and users who maintain sites or postings in the name of Ohio State. Examples of platforms used for marketing and communications at Ohio State include Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, LinkedIn and YouTube. To make sure the site you maintain is within university compliance, please review the policy at https://universitymarketing.osu.edu/assets/policy/social/Social_Media_Accounts_Policy.pdf
