Social media is considered a public record, and as public entities, school districts must comply with public records and Freedom of Information laws in their state. Social media archiving helps school districts and educational organizations of all sizes remain compliant by archiving and capturing public records created on social media.
In addition to compliance, archiving social media also reduces the risk for school district’s use of social media. Social networks like Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram have become one of the quickest and most effective ways to communicate with parents, faculty, staff, and students on news and events happening around the district. As more critical communications occur on social media, school districts and other educational institutions are finding it equally as critical to ensure these communications are retained and are reproducible.
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.
