Staying Informed and Involved Online

To highlight our commitment to transparency in government, the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs has launched several new Web-based tools for outreach, education and information. These tools are not intended to replace the channels currently in place for press and constituent communication (press inquiries or complaints regarding agency services should be directed to Krista Selmi (617-626-1109) or Amy Mahler (617-626-1129), and questions or complaints regarding agency services should be directed to Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs at env.internet@state.ma.us (617-626-1000)). Rather, these tools are meant to enhance our ability to educate, empower, and inform the residents of Massachusetts.

Below are some of the many ways we encourage people to stay informed and engaged, including Commonwealth Conversations: The Great Outdoors weblog ("blog"), Twitter, Flickr, and RSS Feeds.

Please note, that Records Retention Law of the Commonwealth requires the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs to preserve records created or received by a state employee. Pursuant to this retention requirement comments posted or messages received via an official state agency page on a third-party web-site (such as an official agency profile on a micro-blog such as Twitter) will be treated as state governmental records and may be permanently archived. Information that you submit voluntarily through social media sites associated with this agency where such information is publically available, including your name, city or town, and the substance of anything that you post may be disseminated further by being posted online at this website or be publicly discussed by a member of the organization.

The policies below pertain only to the Executive Office of Energy and Environmental Affairs website content; other organizations within Mass.Gov may have different policies. Please be sure to review the privacy policies and terms of use for any social media accounts you access through a link from Mass.Gov as they may differ based on the organization hosting the content.

Your Third Party Social Media Accounts

Many pages on the EEA Website and on the Blogs allow you to interact with your own third party social media accounts on an affirmative basis.  For example, from a post on a Blog, you may click a button to “like” a post on your Facebook™ account or to pin a post to your Pinterest™ account.  Clicking such a third party social media button on the EEA Website or on a Blog may prompt you to log into the relevant third party social media provider if you are not already logged in and should work in the same manner as if you logged in to the third party social media provider directly (e.g., it may set one or more persistent cookies as a result of logging in).  If you are already logged in, or once you are logged in, to the third party social media provider, the button will facilitate your interaction with that third party social media provider.  Moreover, when you add content from the EEA Website or from a Blog to your third party social media account, it is possible that your public account information can be associated with the EEA Website or Blog content that you are posting.  For example, if you retweet a Mass.Gov tweet (more information on the Mass.Gov Twitter™ account is at the bottom of this policy), someone could use Twitter to search for keyword in the original tweet and, potentially, see your public account information.

In addition to your interaction with third party social media providers on an affirmative basis, we may use widgets that interact on a limited basis (e.g., by accessing a preexisting persistent cookie) with your third party social media provider solely by virtual of your viewing a web page on the EEA Website or on the Blogs.  We will try to note in our privacy policy for the EEA Website or for the Blogs when we are using such a third party social media widget.  For example, if we use a Facebook widget to display “Likes,” the widget may check with Facebook when you access the page to see if you have already “Liked” the page.  If you have, the “Like” button may present you with the option of un-“liking” the post.  Similarly, if we use a Twitter widget to display a Twitter feed with a “Follow” option, the widget may check with Twitter to determine if are already “following” that feed and present you with the option to un-“follow” the feed.  In these instances, it is technically possible for the third party social media provider to track your movements across the EEA Website and across the Blogs.

These third party social media accounts will be governed by their own separate website policies to which you likely agreed when you signed up.  These website policies usually include a privacy policy and terms of service.  These policies apply to your use of the third party social media account.

While we encourage you to subscribe to our videos, share them, comment on them (please note our YouTube Comment Policy), and embed them in your own sites.

YouTube Comment Policy

We expect conversations to follow the rules of polite discourse and we ask that participants treat each other, as well as our employees, with respect. We will not post comments that include:

  • Profanity and vulgar or abusive language
  • Threats of physical or bodily harm
  • Sensitive information (for example, information that could compromise public safety)
  • Offensive terms that target specific ethnic or racial groups

For the benefit of robust discussion, we ask that comments remain "on-topic." This means that comments will be posted only as they relate to the topic of the video. We will not post comments that include:

  • Off-topic comments (If you have off-topic comments that are relevant to the Office of the Governor, please submit them via our contact page at www.mass.gov/eea/contact-us.html )
  • Questions from the media
  • Identical comments by the same user (please don't submit over and over expecting the post to show up faster) or multiple users (a group of people sending identical messages or one person submitting under different aliases). In the case of identical comments, we will approve the first submission.

Twitter Twitter is a free social networking site that allows users to send and read other users' updates of up to 140 characters in length. While people use Twitter in many different ways for both personal and professional reasons, we are using Twitter at the Secretary's Office as another way to keep citizens informed about what we're doing and as another way to get feedback.
