Social Media Comment Policy
AFMS Strategy, Policy and Implementation Plan – February 19, 2011
We welcome comments that facilitate communication about topics concerning the Air Force Medical Service (AFMS). We reserve the right to determine which comments violate our comment policy as wells as remove violations. User comments do not necessarily reflect the opinion of 92d Medical Group, Fairchild AFB, the Department of Defense (DoD) or the United States.
Our social media activities are not intended to act as an alternative to visiting your doctor or contacting your local facility. We do not include any personal health information (PHI) on our social media networks or MTF websites, and PHI will be removed if posted by a user. If you have an urgent health issue or concern, please contact your local patient advocate number. If you do not know how to contact your local facility, please provide your current base location in your post so we can direct you accordingly. For benefit related issues, please contact the appropriate TRICARE office.
Please remember, the information you post online is public. To protect your own privacy and the privacy of others, do not include personally identifiable information (PII) such as Social Security numbers, phone numbers, addresses or e-mail addresses in the body of your comment.
Please observe the following guidelines or your comments will be subject to removal:
No personal medical history of yourself or others
No classified information or sensitive military content
No copyright protected material
No information that violates privacy
No hateful, violent or offensive content
No endorsements and promotions
No personal attacks
No pornography or sexual content
No off-topic remarks
No spam/malicious code
Any other content that could put the United States, DoD or AFMS at risk
We recognize that the web is a 24/7 medium, and your comments are welcome at any time. However, given the need to manage federal resources, moderating and posting of comments will occur during regular business hours Monday through Friday. Comments submitted after hours or on weekends will be read and posted as early as possible the next business day.
Members of the media are asked to send questions to the appropriate office of public affairs through their normal channels and to refrain from submitting questions as comments. These comments are subject to removal.
Thank you for taking the time to read this comment policy. For additional guidance, please reference the Air Force New Media Manual. We encourage your participation in our social media outlets and look forward to an educational exchange of ideas.
Be the first to know and let us send you an email when AFMS-Fairchild AFB-92d Medical Group posts news and promotions. Your email address will not be used for any other purpose, and you can unsubscribe at any time.
