Webinar Series: Social Media Records

Illustration of social media icons floating around a megaphoneLocal governments and state agencies across Texas rely on the ubiquity of social media platforms to facilitate quick and accessible communication with their citizens. But, what does that mean for records management? How can governments fulfil their obligation to safeguard public information within the boundaries of these third-party tools?

This series of eight mini webinars answers these questions and more with videos covering topics such as identifying records, capture strategies, and policy development. Videos range from five to ten minutes each - perfect for fitting into a record manager's busy schedule. A new video will be posted every two weeks starting June 1, 2022.
