Guidelines on use of networking sites among gov’t workers out soon

A guideline for the responsible use of social networking sites such as Facebook and Twitter,
among government employees will be issued soon.

In a media briefing Tuesday, Deputy Presidential Spokesperson Abigail Valte said
Malacanang has already approved the guidelines but several departments and agencies
are still being consulted on the proper implementation of the government’s social networking
policy.

The guidelines, according to Valte, is based on the existing code of conduct for public officials
and employees.

She said the consultation process will look into the legal aspect on the implementation of
the guidelines to ensure that the rights of government workers such as their freedom of
expression are not violated.

“There is already an approved guidelines on the social networking policy but several
agencies are still being consulted on how to properly go about it,” Valte said. (PCOO)
