Social media policy reminder

USPS wants employees to follow its rules about sharing workplace images and information on social media.

The Postal Service is reminding employees to avoid taking photos or videos of their workplace to share on social media, especially during the coronavirus pandemic.

During this challenging time, employees may want to post images of the inside or outside of the facility where they work, and share workplace stories with friends and family.

However, workplace images may contain information that is not meant to be seen by the public. In addition, others in the facility have a right to privacy and must give consent to have their images posted on social media.

The Postal Service’s Administrative Support Manual, Section 363, outlines the organization’s social media policy and what is — and what isn’t — allowed to be shared online, while AS-805 Information Security has guidance on photography and video.

Employees with questions should speak to a manager or supervisor.
