Social media policy for WSU employees

The University’s social media policy governs employees’ use of social media on the job. The policy allows and encourages staff to contribute and post appropriate content about WSU and their work on social media channels during the workday, but notes that posts should be consistent with the nature of the employee’s official business or be approved by the employee’s direct supervisor.
