During an emergency, amplify official information

We talk a ton about people who carelessly retweet, share, and re-purpose information. Whether mis-informed or attention seeking whores, it is likely that people need a bit more digital responsibility on line esp w/ social media.

Part of me thinks that min-informed people don’t believe in the power of social media.

Seasoned PIOs know the potential of social media.

However, check out the tweet from Mountain View Police Department’s Capt Chris Hsiung re: Dallas Police Department.


Well said Capt Hsiung.

I encourage many in my classes to be good stewards of information and not to skew truth as it can only delay the root cause from others. We will not be led astray or swayed by sensational tweets, posts, etc…We must rely on straight facts and truth.

No HIPAA violation, but RN fired for posting to Instagram?

Wait a sec…

You can get fired for posting an Instagram picture even without a patient in the picture?

Instagram post (Cort of ABCNews.com)

Apparently Katie Duke (RN) was fired from New York Presbyterian Hospital because of her Instagram post was deemed “insensitive”.

We talk a bunch about this my PIO/Social Media classes right?

Again I ask, can you get fired from your job because of an Instagram post?

Guess so…
