To highlight our commitment to transparency in government, Mass.gov provides 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. Rather, these tools are meant to augment our ability to educate, empower, and inform the residents of Massachusetts. Social Media inquiries should be directed to Sam Mathius at email@example.com. Questions or complaints regarding agency services should be directed to MassITDigitalServices@mass.gov.
Please note that Records Retention Law of the Commonwealth requires the Mass.gov team 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 social network) 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 administration.
The information below pertains only to Mass.gov.
Many pages on Mass.gov 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 Mass.gov 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 Mass.gov or from a Blog to your third-party social media account, it is possible that your public account information can be associated with Mass.gov 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 a keyword in the original tweet and, potentially, see your public account information.
While you can always check Mass.gov for regular updates, it's often easier to have information come to you. RSS lets you do just that. When you subscribe to an RSS feed, updates come to you as we post them.
Mass.gov and many agencies offer RSS feeds to press releases and other relevant news and information. Get more information about RSS feeds and how to use them.
