Social Media Policy

Social networking and social media are powerful communication tools which can have a significant impact on organisational and professional reputations. Institute of Technology Carlow has developed a policy to help clarify how best to use these tools to the professional benefit of the Institute, its staff and students. Examples of social networking websites are Blogging, Twitter, Facebook, YouTube, Wikis etc.

The scope of this policy is limited to Institute of Technology staff and students, in their capacity as members of the Institute community, using social media in the domain or on any other social networking website.
