The purpose ofthese guidelines is to help Duke communicators understand how Duke policiesapply to digital communications such as blogs and social media, and to guidethem in using social media platforms. The guidelines apply to material thatDuke communications offices and related units publish on Duke-hosted websitesand branded Duke unit profiles such as those on Facebook and Instagram. Anyquestions about these guidelines should be directed to [email protected] Duke Health employees should refer to thespecific standards and guidelines established for Duke Health sites and digitalchannels.

Duke units anddepartments have wide latitude to create and maintain a presence on socialmedia channels such as Facebook and Twitter. They should do so in ways that areprofessional, technically secure and transparent. Units and departments areresponsible for ensuring that content posted by, or on behalf of, any unit ordepartment adheres to all Duke University policies and to appropriate laws thatgovern the public dissemination of information. To that end, units anddepartments should periodically review the guidelines for social mediaestablished by University Communications and consult with UniversityCommunications if they have questions about their implementation:

  • LastPass browser extension for Microsoft Edge without a binary component. Features dependent on a binary component, such as automatic logoff after idle and sharing of login state with other browsers, will not function. LastPass for Microsoft Edge Legacy.

Understand your strategy. Social media efforts should be part of alarger communications strategy. Know what you’re trying to accomplish, and why.Before launching a social media program, you should be able to answer thesequestions:

  • Who isyour audience?
  • What doyou want them to do?
  • Issocial media the best way to do this?

Remember that everything is public. There’s no such thing as a private ortemporary social media post. Search engines can turn up your posts years laterand screen captures live forever. Don’t post something today that may haunt youlater.

Be respectful. As a general rule, be respectful and don’t post anything you would be uncomfortable saying in a public setting. Follow Duke’s values and the Duke Community Standard.

Be transparent about your role at Duke. If you participate in or maintain a socialmedia site on behalf of the university, clearly state your role and goals.Strive for accuracy, correcting errors quickly and visibly. If you havequestions about whether it is appropriate to write about certain material, askyour supervisor first.

Maintain confidentiality and follow allapplicable Duke University policies. Do not post confidential, proprietary or protected health informationabout students, employees, patients or other members of the Duke community. Usegood ethical judgment. All federal guidelines such as FERPA, HIPAA anduniversity policies such as the Duke Confidentiality Agreement must be observed on Duke-sponsored orDuke-maintained social media sites.

Actively moderate comments and discussionson your channels. By theirnature, social networking sites are participatory and involve sharing amongmultiple users. However, it is important to monitor live discussions foroff-topic or abusive comments.

Respect university time and property. As stated in Duke’s OIT policies,university computers and work time are to be used for university-relatedbusiness. It’s appropriate to post at work if your comments are directlyrelated to accomplishing work goals, but maintain your personal social media onyour own time using non-Duke computers.

Set up your accounts with Duke in mind. Use shared email addresses for registration and keep track of passwords (we recommend using LastPass) so that others in your office have access to your accounts if needed, or in case you move on to another position.

Getting started with a password manager

Many users have more than 100 accounts and passwords for the various websites and cloud services they access, so getting started with a password manager like LastPass can seem daunting. Here are some tips for prioritizing your passwords:

  • Use LastPass' Security Challenge to review those sites where you have duplicate or weak passwords. Those should be the ones you change first.
  • Work through the list a few passwords at a time until you have removed all the duplicate passwords and changed your weak passwords to unique, random ones for each site. You can re-run the security check at any time to watch your score increase!
  • When changing passwords, aim for passwords with 20 characters, with a mix of upper- and lowercase characters, numbers and symbols. Some sites limit the number of characters you can use and will warn you when to decrease the number of characters.

Emergency access and family sharing

  • Don't wait for an emergency to discover you or a loved one may not have access to important passwords. LastPass Premium allows you to set up emergency access for your account.
  • LastPass Premium also allows sharing passwords with other LastPass users, including those with free accounts. This is a good way to ensure that family members have access to critical financial and health accounts if the need arises, or to simply give a child access to use a password for a service. More information about the Premium features are available from LastPass. (Another option is LastPass Families, which costs $48 and provides 6 premium accounts and a management console.)

LastPass Enterprise
