Gannett Sets New Social Media Policy

Starting today, employees at Gannett stations have a new social media policy to adhere to.

In the lengthy memo from Gannett CEO Gracia Martore, which you can read in full on Jim Romenesko’s site, the company notes that social media “is core to our strategic goal of reinventing local journalism in the digital age,” but warns employees to conduct themselves with care. Among the guidelines: “assume that all of your activities on a social media site are public, regardless of the privacy tools you may use” and “never post anything you would not be willing [to] publish or broadcast.”

The memo clearly states that violating the social media policy “may result in disciplinary action up to and including dismissal.”
