GSA could impose rules for Facebook
The Federal Eye reports in Tuesday's Post:
The General Services Administration is attempting to become the first civilian federal agency to codify how workers should behave on Facebook and Twitter, but it faces resistance from one of its unions over the use of social media Web sites.
GSA officials and representatives of the National Federation of Federal Employees' GSA National Council are set to resume negotiations Wednesday, two weeks after talks broke down over the proposed social media policy. The government wants GSA workers who post comments on non-agency Web sites to consider adding a disclaimer that their opinions do not reflect official GSA policy. It also wants to remind workers not to share details of internal discussions or agency policy on non-GSA blogs.
"Assume your thoughts are in the public domain and can be published or discussed in all forms of media. Have no expectation of privacy," the proposed policy states.
