Chapter 3. What "Official Use" Means
When you join Facebook, Twitter and other social sites, you do so with different responsibilities. When representing the agency, you're speaking in an "official" voice and have been authorized to speak for the agency. If you have your own Facebook and Twitter sites, you're speaking in a "personal" voice" with your own views and opinions.
The difference between official use and personal use of social media is this:
Personal use: You can do anything that's not illegal.
Official Use: You can do what you're authorized to do.
Check with the Office of Special Counsel if you have questions.
