Social Media Policy

The Department for Enterprise has a number of social media channels that we use to share, inform and engage with our target audience. In order for the Department to continue to use this method of communication it is important that all users follow this social media policy.

  • Messages that name or identify any specific Government worker may be removed by the page admin
  • Irrelevant content and spam may be removed by the page admin
  • Foul language and offensive comments can be removed by the page admin
  • Posts that contain factually incorrect information may be removed by the page admin
  • Show respect for other users’ views and opinions
  • The admin has the right to remove or block users who persistently break the above rules

How the Department for Enterprise will use social media channels:

  • The page is a tool for discussion and is encouraged as such, however all comments will be reviewed and monitored and responses are at the discretion of the page admin
  • The administrator will respond to any questions or queries that are sensible and within the Department’s knowledge and scope
  • The page is not a form of Propaganda and is instead a tool to inform the audience of facts and the latest news from the Department

Please note that your comments and messages may not be read by the relevant sector representative, however they will be monitored by the page administrator and passed on when relevant. For this reason it may be better to contact the sector directly.

As a government department we have to be extremely careful about the content that we publish, so as not to be bias to one person / organisation and so please don’t be offended if we don’t repost something you have asked us to.
