This is a curated list of public-facing social media policies available in Australia; Britain; Canada; Ireland, Italy, Spain and the U.S.
I set this page up as part of my earlier forays into academic research and it’s intended to help newsrooms and educators inform new and student journalists of best practices around social media.
Please contact me on Twitter if you have more entries I can add!
