SECTION 6. SOCIAL MEDIA
NAP recognizes the popular use of social media networks, such as FaceBook and LinkedIn, and blogs to communicate, but when those users are psychometrists, challenges to the patient-psychometrist relationship can arise. Similarly, NAP recognizes that the professional conduct of its members on social media networks can adversely affect the profession as a whole. Thus, representation of the corporation on any and all of these platforms shall be uniform and shall be monitored by the Board of Directors.
Guidelines for social media presence for the corporation shall include, but are not limited to the following:
(a) Privacy settings that safeguard personal information and content shall be used on all social networking sites, to the fullest extent possible.
(b) Members are responsible to insure that all confidential information is handled appropriately.
(c) Members should routinely monitor their own Internet presence to ensure that the personal and professional information on their own sites and content posted about them by others, is accurate and appropriate.
(d) Personal and professional content online should be separated.
(e) Members should recognize that actions online and content posted can negatively affect their reputations among patients and colleagues, and may even have consequences for their careers.
(f) Control or ownership of groups on social media networks shall remain with the corporation.
