Guidance on Other New Media Tools
Consistent with the Department of the Interior’s (DOI's) Social Media and Networking Policy, the BLM's New Media Team in the National Communications Directorate provides oversight of the agency’s official presence on public new media and serves as the official point-of-contact for DOI’s Office of New Media.
In this role, the BLM's New Media Team reviews all requests by BLM offices for external new media accounts, to include external social media sites, social networking, and other Web 2.0 services or tools.
A new media account must be covered under a special terms of service agreement (TOS), privacy impact assessment (PIA), and possibly a system of records notice (SORN) approved by the DOI. To be covered under a DOI TOS agreement, a new media account must be approved by the bureau point-of-contact and reported to the DOI’s Office of New Media.
As the BLM’s point-of-contact, the BLM's New Media Lead ensures that new media accounts comply with an existing TOS and, as business needs arise, coordinates with the DOI’s Office of New Media on negotiating additional TOS for new media.
