    After a recent news item from our LA - we have since removed our twitter and facebook pages. I agree Facebook and Twitter were two great forms of communication with students and parents - but we have now been left with little choice.

    Use of Social Networking Sites

    As you might be aware, the County Council does not currently have a policy on the use of Social Networking Sites although we understand that this is currently under consideration.

    However, pending the introduction of a County Council policy, everybody should be very clear that Children and Young People's Services does not support the use of social networking sites as a suitable means of contact with children and *young people due to the necessity to adhere to certain professional standards for some groups of staff and, importantly, some very significant safeguarding concerns.* This is in line with guidance and recent comments from CEOP, the Child Exploitation and Online Protection Centre - more guidance and information can be found on the [ Thinkuknow for Parents: FAQs - Social Networking ] CEOP site.

    Managers are requested to ensure that the use of *sites such as Facebook, Twitter, etc., for* the *distribution of information or for personal contact with children and young people is not permitted and any failure to comply with this instruction could result in investigation and possibly disciplinary action.

    Well that's BS, typical knee-jerk response and as for CEOP, they're dangerous - a little knowledge can be a dangerous thing, they're little more than a big megaphone for their CEO Jim Gamble.
