Social Media Toolkit

Personal use of social media

The social media policy applies to personal activity and/or professional activity that is not part of official VUMC communication, and where you identify yourself as a Vanderbilt employee, either through a bio, comments, or by using your Vanderbilt email address. The following disclaimer should be added wherever you identify yourself as part of VUMC while not officially acting on behalf of the medical center:

The views and opinions expressed here are not necessarily those of Vanderbilt University Medical Center, and they may not be used for advertising or product endorsement purposes.

For example, if you list Vanderbilt University Medical Center as your employer on your personal Facebook profile, you'll need to add the disclaimer as well.

If you do not identify yourself as being affiliated with Vanderbilt University Medical Center, the policy does not apply.
