  • Social media sites must have an official MTU appointed administrators/moderators approved by the Communications and Marketing Unit.
  • Social media sites are subject to periodic review to ensure they meet the needs of the University and the relevant unit in regards to user engagement and conformity to policy guidelines.
  • Inactive accounts or accounts that do not meet their original brief will be closed as they could reflect poorly on the MTU and/or defeat the purpose of having the account.
  • Content for official MTU social media sites must be approved by the administrators/moderators prior to publishing.
  • Best practices for social media accounts should be considered.
