BBC gets new social media rules

by Richard on July 15, 2011

From The Telegraph (via @annamdrew)

“Don’t sound off about things in an openly partisan way.

“Don’t be seduced by the informality of social media into bringing the BBC into disrepute.

“Don’t criticise your colleagues.

“Don’t reveal confidential BBC information.

“Don’t surreptitiously sanitise Wikipedia pages about the BBC.”

The summary — “Don’t do anything stupid” — is as sensible as it is succinct.

I think that needss to be qualified. ‘Don’t reveal confidential information about the BBC unless it’s in the public interest to do so’. It can never be a good thing to cover up scandal, if anything ever arises there.
