Social media policy for members

Today we’re launching our new social media policy for members and RCPsych staff.

The policy includes sections on what we mean by social media, our advice on using your personal social media account to promote College work, and a special section for members who are helping to run official College social media feeds.

There is a detailed section about behaviour on social media, which we hope will help keep you safe and make best use ofTwitter, Facebook, Instagram and other platforms when engaging on work-related matters.

Referring to the College’s values this section talks about respect for others, as well as advising on what to do if you feel provoked or harassed.

It also includes an excellent top tips video from Kate Lovett on how to make the most of Twitter as a psychiatrist.
