Idaho Parents Unlimited's New Social Media Policy

Hello friends,
IPUL is in the process of updating our social media policies as more and more messages are coming to our organization via digital means. Unfortunately, we find the Facebook inbox and notifications to be somewhat unreliable. This is especially true when there is more than one person serving as a page administrator. Therefore, if you send a message to our FB inbox, you will receive an automatic reply directing you to our website intake form or phone number. We'll do our best to check for messages each day, but we much prefer to use our systems that are currently in place to provide appropriate assistance. 
That said, we have also developed new policies regarding staff and their personal FB pages as well as other social media sites - including personal cell phones (text messaging). Frequently, our staff are tagged in posts on groups and expected to respond (or they feel obligated) after regular business hours. They also receive private instant messages via this technology as well.
All staff have been instructed to respond to work-related messages only during our regular business hours (Monday-Friday; 9:00-5:00) or during their individually scheduled hours when they are each working using company equipment and resources only. We hope this will help us to be consistent in providing assistance as well as ensuring messages don't fall through the cracks. Thanks for understanding!
~Angela Lindig, Executive Director
