Social Media Policies for YouTube, Flickr and LinkedIn Added to Knowledge Network

John Storts

Knowledge Network contributor Colorado State University added three more social media policies this week. Like the previously added policies aimed at Twitter and Facebook, these documents provide the university's perspective on social networking and offer best-practice guidelines for appropriate use when representing CSU:


Colorado State University YouTube Best Practices

Colorado State University Flickr Best Practices

Colorado State University LinkedIn Best Practices


CSU encourages the use of social-networking tools to communicate with prospective and current students, staff, faculty, partners and alumni. These guidelines are intended to help users who represent the university conduct their online activities in a successful, productive and legal manner.


IT managers and others responsible for developing similar organizational policies can use these policies as starting points. There's no need to "reinvent the wheel" when figuring out how to best incorporate social media into organizational communication.
