Form social media policy
Social networks provide fun and exciting ways to connect with others who share common interests. These guidelines are meant to permit appropriate use of social media, while prohibiting conduct through social media that is illegal or against University of Florida policy or professional standards. These guidelines also provide suggestions for situations involving social media that could be damaging to either participants or the university.
The University of Florida Social Media Use Guidelines apply to all employees and students of the university. The guidelines also apply to other people (such as volunteers and appointees) who use internally managed university computing resources. The guidelines apply to all forms of social media, such as Facebook, Twitter, blogs, YouTube, Flickr, text messages, and other, less-popular platforms, as well as those not in existence at the time of the adoption of these guidelines.
The guidelines apply to employees outside of work hours and while using personal accounts when use of social media affects an individual’s responsibility as a member of the university community as further explained in the last section of these guidelines.
This document provides several policies and regulations that may apply to the use of social media. Violations of these policies may result in criminal or civil penalties, and/or consequences affecting an individual’s employment or student status, including but not limited to disciplinary action, and may result in personal liability.
Users of university computing resources should be aware that such use is not private and may be monitored in accordance with the University of Florida Acceptable Use of Computing Resources Policy referenced below.
Activities Violating the Law
Use of social media in ways that violate the law, including but not limited to federal, state, local and, when applicable, foreign laws, regulations, rules, policies, and University of Florida or Florida Board of Governors regulations and policies, may result in criminal or civil penalties as well as disciplinary actions. Students must also abide by the Student Code of Conduct. These guidelines highlight certain aspects of these laws, regulations, and policies, but are not intended to and do not represent a comprehensive review of them. In addition, what is posted on a social networking site may be used as evidence of activity that violates the law (as described above).
