Made a start on a very rough early draft earlier, before getting side tracked by Easter eggs. Hoping to get something ready in time for the when all the candidates are announced so it would be fantastic to get some feedback and suggestions…
Know and follow The Seven Principles of Public Life
Be mindful that what you publish will be public for a long time
Be authentic and personal
Respect your audience. Don’t use ethnic slurs, personal insults, obscenity, or engage in any conduct that would not be acceptable in person.
Always pause and think before posting.
Don’t pick fights, be the first to correct your own mistakes.
Be honest. Say what you know to be true or have a good source for. If you’ve made a mistake, don’t be afraid to admit it.
Always check facts. Do not automatically assume that material is accurate and take reasonable steps where necessary to seek verification, for example, by checking data/statistics and being wary of photo manipulation.
Try to add value. Provide worthwhile information and perspective.
Social media is a good place to discuss community issues however for case work of a more personal nature, reply to suggest they phone or email your office or attend one of your advice surgeries.
Do not block constituents. You should not block constituents unless they are abusive, harmful or obscene, in which case you should report them to the relevant social media company and the police.
