Thanks Colin,

These suggestions seem logical and reasonable where tweeters might have access to confidential materials.  As such I believe they should all be accepted with your note as to item 10 becoming item 2.

Thanks for your helpful feedback,

Hi Joni -

I had a couple of comments on the proposed language...


*         The nature of the Guidelines makes sense with regards to corporate confidentiality agreements etc., but might be a bit confusing in regards to the Kantara membership obligations and the open way that business is conducted in the organization.   I have suggested slight modifications to items 4 and 5 to differentiate between "private or internal" and "confidentiality" obligations, which I understand are largely to third parties, such as ISO.

*         It might be good to include a point regarding the obligations of the membership in regards to compliance with antitrust guidelines.   I have suggested an additional point 10 (which should probably move up to being point 2, if agreeable).



1.      Be transparent and state that you are a Member or Participant of KANTARA. Your honesty will be noted in the Social Media environment. If you are writing about KANTARA or a competitor, use your real name, identify that you are a Member or Participant of KANTARA, and be clear about your role. If you have a vested interest in what you are discussing, be the first to say so.

2.       Never represent yourself or KANTARA in a false or misleading way. All statements must be true and not misleading; all claims must be substantiated.

3.       Post meaningful, respectful comments - in other words, please, no spam and no remarks that are off-topic or offensive.

4.       Use common sense and common courtesy: for example, it's best to ask permission to publish or report on conversations that are meant to be private or internal to KANTARA. Make sure your efforts to be transparent don't violate KANTARA obligations to third-parties regarding confidentiality, or reveal any private KANTARA discussions.

5.       Stick to your area of expertise and do feel free to provide unique, individual perspectives on non-private activities at KANTARA.

6.       When disagreeing with others' opinions, keep it appropriate and polite. If you find yourself in a situation online that looks as if it's becoming antagonistic, do not get overly defensive and do not disengage from the conversation abruptly: feel free to ask the Executive Director for advice and/or to disengage from the dialogue in a polite manner that reflects well on KANTARA.

7.       If you want to write about competitive activities, make sure to be diplomatic, have the facts straight and that you have the appropriate permissions.

8.       Never comment on anything related to contract negotiations, legal matters, litigation, or any parties KANTARA may be in litigation with.

9.       Be smart about protecting yourself, your privacy, and KANTARA confidential information. What you publish is widely accessible and will be around for a long time, so consider the content carefully. Search engines have a long memory.

10.   Be mindful of the KANTARA policy with regards to potential antitrust considerations, such as the discussion of competitive business terms while representing a KANTARA viewpoint (http://www.ieee-isto.org/sites/default/files/ISTO%20Antitrust%20Guidelines_Approved_081217.pdf)

Dear Leadership Council,

The LC met today and was not quorate.  But we did briefly discuss the points below as a policy to recommend the Board of Trustees to ratify regarding use of Social Media.  This draft policy is meant to provide some simple and clear guidance for best practice use of social media tools when doing so in conjunction with a Kantara activity or Group.

The group on the call agreed that the next appropriate step is to solicit feedback for the next 7 days.  At the close of 7 days and with feedback incorporated as appropriate, the LC would seek to have an e-vote motion to Approve the draft social media use policy as recommendation to the Board of Trustees for ratification.

So - please get in feedback you might have by no later than start of business (your local time) May 3 2012.

Thanks in advance.
