Interior's Digital Media Guide provides official guidance to bureaus and offices in their use of social media and related tools.

Some elements of this guide are hard rules. Others are recommendations. Still others are requests for advice. As with most SocMed use, collaboration will be welcomed.

The associated Social Media Policy outlines specific rules for the use of social media at Interior.

Before embarking on any use of social media for official purposes, consult the Social Media Policy.

This is a living document, undergoing edits on a (somewhat) frequent basis. It is not recommended that you print any portion of this guide; rather, please work from the current online edition. It remains the current guidance from Interior's Office of the Secretary's Office of Communications.

Before creating an official social media account, you must fill out the social media request form and your bureau will be in touch with whether you can create a new account.
