When writing a non profit social media policy guide, it’s highly recommended that you begin with a rough draft. This can be based on a boiler plate template that can be found online at various social entrepreneurship sites, and then customized for a specific organization. There are also interactive online tools , such as the Policy Tool for social Media, which can help you to design a non profit social media policy guide from the ground up. There are some excellent suggestions for customizing and improving on your rough draft “Social Media, Risk, and Policies for Associations” by SocialFish and Croydon Consulting. The section on “Alternative Language for Key Policy Points” is especially recommended. An outline for a social media policy guide begins with a summary statement, which is an overview of what the policy covers.
