National Archives and Record Administration to Present at GSMCON 2019

Government social media professionals will be descending on Nashville, Tennessee, from April 2-4, 2019 for the 2019 Government Social Media Conference (GSMCON). In total, close to 1,000 social media coordinators, communicators, elected officials, marketers, law enforcement officials, emergency managers, vendors, and representatives from major social media networks will be attending the event.

PageFreezer will also be there—we’re both an exhibitor and an event sponsor. In addition, we’re excited to announce that we’ll be sponsoring a presentation by the National Archives and Records Administration (NARA).  

Government Social Media Conference (GSMCON) 2019 will be held in Nashville.

Kristen Albrittain—a member of NARA’s social media team who specializes in policy, terms of service agreement negotiations, and corporate records management for social media—will be delivering a talk entitled Getting a Handle on Records Management for Social Gov.

During the talk, she’ll be discussing how to capture and manage records in accordance with NARA guidelines. The session will specifically look at:

  • How social media fits into the Federal Records Act.
  • Practical options for capture and management of content.
  • The challenges of writing a schedule for dynamic content.

If you’re attending GSMCON this year, we’d love for you to join us for this informative session. It’ll be taking place on Tuesday, April 2 at 2pm. The venue is Jackson EF. As mentioned, we’re also exhibiting at the event, so visit us at Booth D and say hello.

Visit our government webpage for more information, or read our blog to find out why we were chosen by the National Archives & Records Administration for all social media archiving. You can also have a look at our social media archiving product page, or simply request a demo to experience it for yourself.

Social media platforms offer an engaging way to share information and connect students, parents, and teachers. A Facebook page or Twitter account makes it easy to inform everyone that school has been closed because of snow, remind parents of important upcoming events, or simply celebrate the latest team win. 

The Best Way to Place Social Media Data on Litigation Hold

With so many people active on social media these days, it’s hardly surprising that posts and comments on platforms like Facebook and Twitter often feature prominently during legal matters. This means that legal professionals have an obligation to protect relevant social media data from spoliation, but the challenges that come with these modern information sources extend far beyond willful destruction of evidence.

Social Media Evidence Spoliation and Preservation

No case better illustrates the risks of social media spoliation than Lester v. Allied Concrete Company. The plaintiff had lost his wife in a tragic vehicle accident and was suing for wrongful death. Unfortunately, some Facebook photos came to light that his lawyer was afraid would prejudice the case, and he consequently told his client to delete them. “We do not want blow ups of other pics at trial,” an email from the law firm read, “so please, please clean up your Facebook and MySpace!”
