Social Media Policy
This Policy establishes the aims of social media interactions of the City of Hobbs and its departments.
- This Policy applies to the City of Hobbs' social media profiles and pages.
- These accounts are primarily focused on explaining and/or promoting events, programs, activities, and laws held or conducted by the City of Hobbs and its departments.
- Upon request and approval, the City of Hobbs may share to its accounts, information provided by its outside partners about these entities' activities and events.
- The City of Hobbs may recognize activity on its social media pages from users who can be verified as valid accounts. If it is determined that communication is from an "unidentifiable individual," then their message or comment will be ignored and may be deleted/blocked from our page.
- An example of an "unidentifiable individual" (i.e. "ghost profile") is a profile with no profile picture, a profile picture of an inanimate object or famous person, a profile with no personal information viewable, a profile with minimal activity, or any logical combination or extension of these which is designed to keep the author's identity anonymous.
- This does not include an individual that utilizes privacy settings to protect their social media content, rather this includes individuals that seek to utilize staged profiles to further their individual aims or goals on the City of Hobbs social media and profile pages.
- There will be no posts or activities that contribute to the endorsement of:
- commercial products or services, or entities
