"New guidelines and tutorial will help increase the use of sites like Facebook and Twitter by state government agencies and ensure compliance with public records laws. Gov. Bev Perdue distributed North Carolina's first state government social media policy and online tutorial to state agencies and departments on Dec. 23. The announcement was made via the Governor's Office Twitter page and the documents can be downloaded on Perdue's Facebook page.

The new guidelines will help and encourage state agencies to develop a presence on social networking sites such as Facebook, Twitter and YouTube, and provide guidance to ensure social media use complies with public records and archiving laws."
