DGS Social Media Policy


The Department of General Services is on Twitter and Facebook and looks forward to engaging with you through these social media tools.  By using social media we aim to provide you with information on the agency’s major activities and initiatives to encompass the many things we do.   This page will give you a better idea on how to interact with us on social media and what you can expect from us.


  • We are committed to having a dialogue with our followers.
  • We will strive to respond to as many relevant questions and comments as possible, but we will not respond to issues that puts personal identifiable information at risk.  Instead you may be provided a telephone number and asked to contact us directly to address your issue in private versus a public forum.
  • Following a Twitter account, including an account in a Twitter list, does not constitute an endorsement; the same applies to re-tweeting messages posted on accounts that DGS may manage, or marking them as “favorites.”
  • The posting and presence of content on Twitter or Facebook, not posted by DGS, does not necessarily mean the agency agrees with the content, ensures its accuracy, or otherwise approves of the content.
