During the coronavirus pandemic, and especially during the holidays, one’s personal social media accounts can be an important way to connect. But USPS wants all workers to remember that it’s best to avoid posting images of postal workplaces online.
One reason is that such photos or videos may contain information that isn’t meant for public viewing. Another is that workers and customers have a right to privacy and must give consent to have their images posted online.
The do’s and don’ts of the organization’s general social media policy are detailed in Section 363 of the Administrative Support Manual, while AS-805 Information Security offers specific guidance on the use of photos and videos.
Employees with questions should speak to a manager or supervisor.
