Social media policy
Where social media platforms have their own rules we will follow them. Any contributions or comments that are made on our social media profiles will be removed if they break the rules set by the platform owner or as per our own policy standards as listed below.Whilst the Council has a range of social media channels, the communications team is responsible for the corporate Cheshire East accounts and this policy relates to this account only.
We encourage people to follow and like our corporate accounts as they contain information that works towards meeting our vision of engaging the public by providing accurate, up-to-date information, especially during emergency situations. The corporate channels should be seen as best practice by other services with Cheshire East council who use social media and consistency of our messages across the organisation should be seen as a priority to reduce reputational risk.
Our corporate account social media seeks to provide information on;
- Our activities and priorities
- News, events and campaigns
- Emergency communications- for example weather and road alerts, or major incidents.
