Social and Professional Networking

One of the important messages we want you to remember is once you post something on a social or professional networking site such as Facebook or LinkedIn, it stays there forever.  Some important points are:

  • Never post personal or protected information about someone else.  This includes information about students, faculty or staff, doctors or nurses, or patients. 
  • This is not the place to talk negatively about anyone or anything.  Remember schools, colleges, and future employers can get access to the information you post, and this will form one of their first impressions of you. 
  • Don't post important personal information about yourself such as address and phone number.  Especially never post information such as bank and credit card information, or your social security number.

URMC Public Relations has put together a social media toolkit that provides some helpful guides at http://www.urmc.rochester.edu/news/social-media-toolkit/.

Please keep all data, both your and others', private.
