Social media

Social media is a very powerful – and public – form of communication. Think before you post.


  • A balance of entertaining and informative posts is good.
  • Always be relevant.
  • Separate your personal opinions from your professional role.
  • Only comment on issues within your area of expertise.
  • Don’t rely solely on social media to communicate urgent or important messages.


  • Use an informal, friendly and conversational voice.
  • Be polite.
