From K-12 schools to colleges and universities, educational institutions manage a lot of information for students and staff in the form of social media records. Social media allows schools to quickly make emergency announcements, promote events, and highlight student achievements. Successful communication can even help increase financial support and boost enrollment. But this broad scope of interaction can also easily expose schools to frivolous and vexatious litigation.
Social media communications are considered public records in all 50 states, requiring schools and school districts to comply with public records and Freedom of Information laws in their state by retaining all social media records created. But managing the unruly nature of social media content to avoid misrepresentation and prove compliance can be challenging. Social media archiving helps school districts and educational organizations of all sizes remain compliant by archiving and capturing public records created on social media.
A social media archive enables districts to preserve in-context and authentic records, including those records that may have been removed, edited, or hidden by community members. Districts can search and pull content and records from the archive whenever they are needed.
Archiving social media gives districts peace of mind and efficiency – so districts can focus on showcasing all the incredible work going on in the district.
