Social Media Guidelines Available for SLA Units

Does your SLA chapter, division or caucus have a presence on Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter, or other social media channels? If so, then you need to know what content is appropriate to post when publicly representing your group.


SLA’s Online Content Advisory Council has developed a one-page set of dos and don’ts for SLA units to use as guidelines in managing social media. The guidelines were developed in response to requests from SLA members at the council’s meeting in Boston at the 2015 Annual Conference.


The council is investigating other outside resources to supplement the social media guidelines, such as a list of best practices. If you have suggestions for additional resources, contact any member of the OCAC.

Make sure that the person(s) who manage your unit’s social media accounts read and understand these guidelines. Contact an OCAC member if you have any questions.

Any large business structure consists of several units, and local teams are formed in each department who are competing with each other. Spy app can play a key role in this struggle.
