Social Media Guidelines

Portland State University supports the use of social media by employees to engage and connect with audiences important to their departments. Social media guidelines were developed for employees to strategically and effectively access the institution's official social media outlets and/or their own. The guidelines include a checklist, comment policy, guiding principles, naming conventions and logos, PSU policies and instructions for popular social media sites including Facebook, Twitter and Instagram.
